Lianyi Xu obtained her Bachelor's degree in Stomatology from Huazhong University of Science and Technology and accepted a 1-year medical residency training in Tongji Hospital. In 2010, she became a Ph.D. candidate in the Ninth People’s Hospital, affiliated with Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Her mentor was Prof. Xinquan Jiang. Since 2016, she worked as a prosthodontist and implantologist in the Stomatology Center of Tongji Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Dr. Xu focused her study on the field of tissue regeneration as well as dental implant early osseointegration in the oral and maxillofacial region. More recently she has broadened her horizon to immunology reaction and tried to explain the balance between hard/soft tissue formation and immunological/inflammatory response in the processes of re-osseointegration and periodontal apparatus re-establishment following regenerative treatment of peri-implantitis and periodontitis.
