Subsequently, he joined the National chromatographic R. & A. center in DICP and was one head of the chromatographic groups since 1992 and an associate Professor since Jun.,1994. From Oct., 1995 to Sept.,1997, Prof. Xu was working at the Universitaet Medizinische Klinik in Tuebingen, Germany under a fellowship from Max-Planck-Institute. In Nov., 1997 he was promoted to professor and since May, 1999 a Ph.D. advisor at DICP. In 2004 he obtained the foundation for distinguished young scientists from National Natural Science Foundation of China. Since 2005 he has been the director of the metabonomics research center, the deputy director (2008-2016) and director (since 2017) of CAS Key Laboratory of Separation Science for Analytical Chemistry,andsince 2016the administrative vice-director of biotechnology division in DICP.

He is the president of Chromatography Committee of Chinese Societyof Chemistry, trustee of the Chinese Societyof Chemistryand deputy-president of the Tumor Metabolism Committee of Chinese SocietyofAnticancer, member of permanent scientific committee of HPLC conference since 2007. He was an editor of J. Chromatgor. B (2007-2014), and is also a contributing editor of TrAC and members of editorial board of theAnal. Chem., Anal. Chim. Acta,J.Proteome Res., Metabolites,Metabolomics,Anal. Bioanal. Chem.,J. Chromatogr. B,J. Sep. Sci., JOAT, Bull Korean Chem. Soc., etc. He was the co-Chairman of 30th ISCC in Dalian, China, 33rd HPLC in Kyoto, Japan and 37th HPLC in Dalian, China.

Prof. Xu has co-written 5 books and published more than 400 peer-reviewed papers in the ‘Web of Science Core Collection’ (WoS) indexed journals including PNAS,Nature Protocols,Hepatology,Clin. Chem., Cancer Res., Diabetes Care, Advanced Science,Anal. Chem., TrAC,J. Chromatogr. A,J. Proteome Res.(WoS H-index = 62, Google H-index =76) and holds more than 50 China patents.

His main research field is in the chromatography-related research and the metabolomics applications in disease biomarker discovery, traditional Chinese medicines and food safety.
