Dr. Xu Qian
Dr. Xu Qian was born and grew up in China. He moved to the United States at age 15 with his
mother who was pursuing a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s affiliated
research laboratory in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Xu went to Brookline High School and
Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. In 2011 he graduated with a Bachelor of Art
degree in Biology. He then worked in a private research laboratory for two years seeking a
career for life. He eventually decided to pursue a medical path like his mother, who was a
pediatric surgeon in China and her life saving stories influenced his early life.
