  • Feng Xie

    Feng Xie

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine

    BioFeng Xie is currently a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University School of Medicine, and he recently graduated with a joint Ph.D. degree from Duke University and the National University of Singapore. He previously obtained his bachelor’s degree from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2017. His research focuses on developing novel informatics methodologies and applying them to various healthcare domains, including children’s health, critical care, and emergency medicine. He extensively utilized large-scale multimodal data including electronic health records (EHR), clinical notes, and medical signal data, to address critical healthcare challenges. In his Ph.D. and postdoctoral training, he developed multiple advanced methods and informatics tools, including AutoScore, MIMIC-IV-ED benchmark, and NeonatalBERT. Used by other researchers globally, some of them have been applied to a wide range of clinical applications including risk prediction and model benchmarking, resulting in dozens of publications by other users. Specifically, AutoScore software has been downloaded more than 10,000 times from the R CRAN platform. and the original paper has garnered over 70 official citations for about 2 years.

    Over 5 years, he published 8 first-author research papers in high-impact journals in the field, with a total impact factor of over 60. His extensive collaborations with clinicians, engineers, and health service researchers also resulted in 12 co-author papers.

    BioI thrive to understand the roles of lysosomes in physiological and pathological conditions. Lysosomes are both degradation compartment and metabolic controlling hub, and dysregulation of lysosomal functions are frequently implicated in a vast number of diseases including neurodegenerative diseases, however, the systematic knowledge of the molecular mechanism by which lysosomal contributes to these diseases is lacking. Ion channels are the primary mediators of neuronal activity, defects in neuronal ion channel activity are linked with many kinds of neurodegenerative diseases. Interestingly, besides typical ion channels that are involved in the neuronal activity, defects in lysosomal ion channels, such as TRPML1, CLN7 and CLC-7 are also implicated in neuropathy. My previous work as Ph.D student in University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center focused on regulation of lysosomal function by ion channels and metabolites. I discovered a mechanism of lysosomal Na+ channel regulate mTORC1 activation by regulating lysosomal amino acid accumulation. I also discovered role of glutamine in controlling lysosomal degradation capacity. In the meantime, I developed novel methods to isolate organelles. My ultimate research goal is to understand the key developmental pathways and how alterations in gene sequences and expression contribute to human disease, therefore, I am pursuing independent academic researcher as my career goal. Starting Feb 2022, I work with Dr. Monther Abu-Remaileh at Stanford University on role of lysosomes in neurodegenerative diseases. I use genetics, chemical biology and omics approaches to study lysosome function under various physiological and pathological conditions, especially age-associated neurodegenerative disorders, and monogenic neurodegenerative lysosome storage diseases. In Stanford, I aim to integrate ionic regulation, metabolomic regulation and functional proteomic regulation to systematically understand the biology of lysosome in physiological conditions and pathological conditions.
