Yu Qiu

Digital Biologics Advanced Application Lead



Yu Qiu is currently Digital Biologics Advance Application Lead (Senior Principal Scientist) at Sanofi. He earned his PhD in Biochemistry in 2012, where he mainly used NMR to study protein structures and dynamics.

Then he moved to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as a postdoc where he studied a Ubiquitin-like protein conjugation cascade in autophagy by biochemistry, enzymology, crystallography and EM.

In 2017, Yu became a Senior Scientist in the Biologics Research department of Sanofi. At Sanofi, he solves structures of antibody-antigen complexes by crystallography and cryoEM and provides structure-based antibody engineering support to projects in multiple therapeutic areas. Since early last year, he has led a small group focusing on in silico antibody engineering and de novo design mainly by physics-based and ML-based methods.
