Dr. Yu received his undergraduate education at the Henan University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and obtained his PhD degree in biochemistry from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Before joining the Hong Kong Baptist University, Dr. Yu worked at the China Pharmaceutical University as a teaching assistant, an assistant professor and an associate professor; at the Nagasaki University, Japan, as a visiting scholar; at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as a Croucher Foundation scholar and a postdoctoral research fellow; at the Xiamen University as a professor; and at the Macau University as an assistant professor. Dr. Yu is known for his research in herbal pharmacology, focusing on anticancer, anti-inflammatory and melanogenesis-regulating herbs, and in quality control of Chinese medicinal materials. He has published more than 130 peer-reviewed research papers.

Dr. Yu once served as an associate editor for the LiShizhen Medicine and Materia Medica Research and now serves on editorial boards of LiShizhen Medicine and Materia Medica ResearchCurrent Topics in Nutraceutical Research,Pharmaceutica Analytica ActaWorld Journal of Translational Medicine. He is currently a technology advisory panel member of the Hong Kong Incu-Tech/Incu-Bio Technology Business Incubation Programme.

Current research interests: 1) Pharmacology of Chinese medicines, focusing on the mechanisms of action of anticancer, anti-inflammation and melanogenesis-modulation herbs; 2) Unique processing of Chinese medicinal herbs, focusing on the mechanisms underlying the processing of Chinese medicines, standardization of adjuvant materials used for the processing of Chinese medicinal herbs, and quality control of decoction pieces.
