Master of Science, Pharmacology, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan; Bachelor of Science, Biotechnology, Beijing Institute of Technology.

Xi earned her MSc in Pharmacology at the University of Saskatchewan and her BSc in Biotechnology at the Beijing Institute of Technology.  She joined the DaCosta Lab as a research technician III in 2024.

In the DaCosta Lab, I will be an integral part of the expansion of research collaborations involving cancer imaging as the lab broadens its cancer research program in the next few years.  I will help to develop new optical imaging techniques using our pioneering in vivo intravital imaging platforms to increase our ability to study tumor biology and the effects of emerging treatments (e.g. immune therapies on tumor response and influence on the tumor microenvironment and metastatic process).
