2011-8-3: Help Yimin Yu and his Family!

2011-8-3 : Donate to Yimin Yu and his Family.

于一民博士自幼勤奋好学,一九七八年在年仅十六岁时以优异成绩考入北京大学生物系,开始了他毕生追求的科学事业。北大毕业后他考入中国科学院发育生物所攻读研究生,之后赴美留学,获亚特兰大艾默里大学博士学位。从2005年到2009年在宾西法尼亚大学担任助教授,从事Toll-like 受体介导天然免疫机制的研究。2010年他接受温州医学院的聘书,成为该院分子生物学技术与应用重点实验室的一名学术带头人。

就在他埋头科研和教学的时候,劫难从天而降。今年六月,他在美被诊断为肝癌晚期。一夜之间,一个容光焕发、活力四射的于一民博士被抛到死亡的边缘。现在他已衰弱至极点,卧床不起。癌症给他带来的剧痛使他在夜里即使用玛啡镇痛也很难入睡。


于一民博士为人乐观开朗,对人一向热心侠肠,肝胆相照。作为一个清贫的学者,他在汶川地震等灾难发生时慷慨解囊,无私捐助。不惑之年,他的音容笑貌仍然象少年一样纯真感人,他热情有力的拥抱总是向朋友们传送温暖与力量。就是这样一个在生活中时时让人感受到阳光和欢乐的朋友,在事业上为人类与疾病斗争而从事研究工作多年的学者,现在自己正在同癌魔进行最后的殊死搏斗。

由于他和妻子在美国已无医疗保险和工资收入,目前一家人经济处境非常艰难。希望相识和不相识的朋友伸出援手,帮助于一民博士和他的亲人(包括两个未成年的儿女)共度难关。


In 1978 and at the age of 16, Dr. Yimin Yu entered Peking University to study cell biology. Upon graduation, he was admitted to the Institute of Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, to further his studies. After receiving a Master Degree, he came to the U.S. to attend Emory University in Atlanta, where he received a Ph.D. in life sciences. From 2005 to 2009, he was an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania, researching on Toll-like receptor-mediated innate immune mechanisms. In 2010, he accepted a faculty position at the Wenzhou College of Medicine to become one of its leading scientists in modern biotechnology.

While dedicating himself to teaching and researching, in June, 2011 he was diagnosed with a late stage of liver cancer at the University of Pennsylvania. Overnight, a vibrant and life-loving Dr. Yimin Yu was thrown to the edge of death. Today, with his cancer cells spreading, he struggles with unrelenting pain day and night, fighting for his life.


A man of optimism and sincerity, Dr. Yimin Yu has always been truthful, friendly and ready to lend a helping hand to others. Despite living on a limited income, he has never hesitated to donate generously when disasters such as the Wenchuan earthquake occurred. Even in his forties, his smiles and laughter are still as pure and touching as that of a boy's, and his embraces always convey strength and warmth. It is hard to believe that a man like him, a constant source of joy for his friends and a dedicated disease fighter for mankind, is now fighting fiercely for his own life.

Now lying in his Philadelphia’s hospice bed, without employment income and health insurance in the U.S., Dr. Yu only finds a challenging financial situation with his urgent needs for medical treatment, and with two young children. Donations from his friends and other generous people are urgently needed to help Dr. Yimin Yu and family live through this hard time. Your help is greatly appreciated.




Update: 于一民博士已于8,19,2011 东部时间7:40AM 去世。
