Xin Xie did his undergraduate and Master's at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, in Molecular biology, focusing on cancer research. Xie finished his PhD in MRC-Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge University in 2015. His PhD project focuses on the functional analysis of Foxp3 protein in gene expression control in regulatory T cells, molecular immunology perspective.

Xin Xie joined NYUAD in 2016 as a postdoc in the biology program and has finished three years of research in the nuclear function of beta-actin in genome organization, gene expression control, and cell identity regulation. He is currently working as a research scientist in the Center for Genomics and systems biology, to screen novel compounds and repurpose existing compounds for novel biological function.
