“He transforms his lectures into something like a thriller movie — you don’t want to miss a second of it,” one student says.

Dr. Yue was honored with a 2009 Alumni Association Excellence in Teaching Award, when the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association annually recognizes university faculty who excel in the art of instruction.

Dr. Yue teaches systems bioengineering, a core course for majors in BME, as well as an elective course in his own specialty of ion channels. He has worked hard at his roles as scientist and instructor. “Both research and teaching have been a high priority for me over the past 20 years,” Yue says. “Being able to teach well and find out new things in science are both important parts of being a university professor.”
