Dr. Yue's interests focus on the role of the central nervous system in controlling movement and muscle function, as well as how the central nervous system reacts to injury, chronic disease, and medical intervention. "We need to understand the impact of factors that complicate recovery of function from neurological diseases, including fatigue, immobilization, aging and cognitive deficits," Dr. Yue noted. "Then we can devise effective strategies for rehabilitation."
He has served as principal investigator and co-investigator on more than 20 grants awarded by, among others, the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, pharmaceutical companies and The Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Dr. Yue serves on the editorial boards and peer review panels of numerous scientific journals. For the National Institutes of Health, he has served as an ad hoc and standing reviewer member for a number of grant review study sections. He is the author/co-author of more than 80 articles and often lectures at regional and international conferences.
Dr. Yue received a doctorate in motor control/biomechanics from the University of Iowa, a masters in exercise science from the University of Northern Iowa, and an undergraduate degree from Beijing Teacher's University. He completed postdoctoral fellowships in physiology (University of Arizona) and biomedical engineering (Cleveland Clinic).
