Dr. Xiao graduated from Zhejiang University in China with a Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences and Technology, and received a Master's degree in Developmental Biology from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1995. He then came to the US and studied the structures of the Drosophila proteins Pelle and Tube implicated in fly development and innate immunity, for which he received his Ph.D. in molecular biophysics at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. He did his postdoctoral training with Dr. Timothy Springer at the Harvard Medical School focusing on cell adhesion receptors such as integrins and ICAMs, both of which play important roles in immune surveillance, thrombosis, and tumor metastasis. He established his own laboratory at NIH in 2006 investigating the structures of innate immune receptors and adapter molecules implicated in antimicrobial host defense. Dr. Xiao joined the faculty at the Case Western Reserve University's Department of Pathology in 2014.
