|Prof. Weiyu Chen|
Professor, Guangzhou Medical University
University of New South Wales Alumnus
Prof. Weiyu Chen earned his PhD from The University of New South Wales and The Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in 2019. During his doctoral studies, Weiyu created a novel mouse model of bilirubin deficiency. This innovative model enabled him to show, for the first time, that bilirubin acts as an in vivo antioxidant. Following his PhD, Weiyu continued his research journey at The Heart Research Institute and The University of Sydney. Here, he completed mechanistic work on the role of bilirubin in atherosclerotic plaque stability and metabolic disease using multiple pre-clinical models. In 2023, Weiyu joined Guangzhou Medical University in China as a professor, taking the lead in a research group that centers on heart disease.
Weiyu’s research seeks to unravel the long-recognized yet poorly understood phenomenon: the protective effect of mild jaundice (slightly elevated bilirubin) against cardiometabolic diseases. His significant contributions and achievements in the fields of public health and medical research are evident through his extensive publication record, comprising over 30 papers in distinguished peer-reviewed international journals such as Circulation Research, Redox Biology, and Free Radical Biology and Medicine. Aligned with the emphasis on practicality and innovation characteristic of Australian education and research, Weiyu aims to integrate these values into his ongoing endeavors in education and research. He is also enthusiastic about fostering collaborations and facilitating knowledge exchange between Australia and China.
