Xin received her B.Sc (Cum laude) in Biotechnology and Food Engineering from the Technion in 2020. Her undergraduate research, under the guidance of Prof. Sima Yaron, focused on cloning and initial characterization of T3SS effector encoded genes in Edwardsiella strains. Xin joined our group on August 2020 and her research aims to develop rapid Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (AST) techniques for clinical applications. She is currently working in collaboration with physicians and microbiologists on a proof-of-concept diagnostic system, termed as iPRISM, for rapid (<90 min) and direct AST of clinically-relevant bacterial infected samples.
