He received his medical degree from the Norman Bethune University of Medical Sciences in China, then went on to earn his PhD from Wayne State University, studying pre-implantation embryonic development and completed his post-doctoral research on uterine responses to embryo implantation at Vanderbilt University. He completed his residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center, an affiliate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and, before joining New Hope Fertility Center, he practiced academic medicine as an attending physician in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Tufts Medical Center.
Dr. Liu has received many teaching awards from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the Tufts University School of Medicine, and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Years of clinical practice and academic research have shown Dr. Liu the limitations of conventional IVF. He is not only a strong advocate of minimal stimulation IVF protocols (Natural IVF and Mini-IVFTM) for indicated patients, but is an accomplished surgeon for minimally invasive procedures as well.
Dr. Liu still actively continues his clinical research in embryo implantation and trophoblast differentiation. At the same time, he is constantly pursuing the development of new medical devices, novel medications, and advanced diagnostic approaches.
