Yutian Dai, M.D., graduated from the Department of Medicine of Nanjing Medical College, China, in 1983. Then he entered the Department of Surgery of Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital and has been devoted to urology and andrology for more than 37 years. From 1997 to 1999, he used to be a postdoctoral scholar at the Brady Institute of Urology of Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Institute of Urology, Medical College of Georgia. After coming back to China, he established the sexual medicine and andrology outpatient clinics and the andrological exam lab at Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, and have been practicing sexual medicine and andrology while doing research in these fields since 1999. Despite a humble beginning with no fancy instrument, the andrology clinic and examination laboratory have been gradually improved upon and grown in size through 13 years. With unremitting efforts, he founded the Department of Sexual Medicine and Andrology at Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital in 2012, which is one of the earliest independent division of andrology set up in the top academic hospitals in China, and, by now, it has become a national medical center in andrology, which integrates different components, including male outpatient clinics, male wards, the andrology exam lab and the male treatment room.
Dr. Yutian Dai has made an outstanding contribution to the development and outreach of sexual medicine and andrology all over China. He is committed to the study of male sexual dysfunction, including the study of the pathogenesis of diabetic erectile dysfunction (ED), stem cell therapy for ED, and the new classification system for premature ejaculation based on neuroelectrophysiological examinations, which is proposed internationally for the first time. He has published more than 70 SCI papers, more than 100 papers in Chinese core journals, edited more than 20 books, and served as a reviewer on the editorial boards for “Asian Journal of Andrology” and other SCI journals. He has been the principle investigator of 5 National Natural Science Foundation of China projects and of more than 10 other provincial-level and municipal-level projects.
Dr. Yutian Dai was awarded the Outstanding Young Scholar Award by the International Society for Impotence research in 2000, the Outstanding Contribution Award for Global Andrology and Sexual Medicine Promotion by the International Society of Sexual Medicine (ISSM) at the 20th ISSM Annual Conference in 2016, and the Outstanding Contribution Award at the 2019 North American Sexual Medicine Annual Meeting by the North American Sexual Medicine Association. He was a committee member of the third and fourth International Consultations of Sexual Medicine by the World Health Organization (ICSM). He is currently the executive vice president of the Chinese Sexual Society, the dean of the Chinese Academy of Andrology, vice chairman of the Global Chinese Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine, chairman-elect of the Sexual Medicine Branch of the Chinese Sexual Society, vice chairman of the Jiangsu Provincial Sexual Society, former chairman of the Andrology Branch of the Nanjing Medical Association. He has also been elected as a member of the executive committee of the Asian-Pacific Society of Sexual Medicine (APSSM) from April, 2019.
From 2008, he has been a member of APSSM and of ISSM. He has attended more than at least 5 biennial meetings of ISSM since 2010. Also, as an active member of the organization committee, he was active in organizing the 20th Global Conference of Sexual Medicine which was held in Beijing, China in October 2016.
Statement/motivation of why I am applying for Member at Large
I am applying the position of member at large of ISSM this time. I wants to be part of ISSM’s Executive Committee, because with my efforts, I hopes to promote communication and cooperation between the Chinese and the International Sexual Societies, and academic exchanges between Chinese doctors and their colleagues around the world. The solidarity and friendships forged in the process will be invaluable. I am hoping for China’s sexual medicine community to integrate into the international one, to become an indispensable member of the ISSM family, and to make an even greater contribution to it.
Through ISSM’s great platform, I also wish to introduce traditional Chinese medical treatments for sexual ailments to international colleagues, and to bring Chinese wisdom and strengths to the development of sexual medicine at large!
Thank you all for your kindly support!
