Dr Yue is an expert in biomedical science and specialized in research of diabetes. Dr Yue graduated from the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom and he subsequently obtained his PhD degree in Biochemistry at the same university. He conducted his post-doctoral research at the Universities of Leicester and Manchester. Before joining the Hong Kong Baptist University, Dr. Yue was a Lecturer in Clinical Biochemistry of the Medical School at the Queen's University of Belfast, United Kingdom. Dr Yue currently teaches Physiology and Internal Medicine (Endocrine disorders and Diabetes; Renal diseases) in our School.

With his increasing interest in Chinese medicine, Dr. Yue subequently got a bachelor degree in Chinese Medicine at the Hong Kong Baptist University, and he is now a registered Chinese Medicine Practitioner. He is currently pursuing another doctoral degree on Chinese medicine.

Dr Yue's research focuses on diabetes and diabetic complications, which includes the molecular basis of the pathogenesis of different complications and the use of Chinese herbs in the treatment of diabetic complications. Recently Dr Yue also studied the correlation between diabetes and osteoporosis, diabetes and bone fracture healing, diabetes and Alzheimer's disease.
