Professor Yip has made significant contributions to the study of China as well as the more broadly conceived history of public health and disease. His work bridges historical scholarship in the East and West as well as making significant contributions to contemporary policy debates on public health issues. He is the author of the pathbreaking book, Health and National Reconstruction in Nationalist China: Development of Modern Health Services, 1928-1937, as well as Disease, Colonialism, and the State: Malaria in Modern East Asian History (Hong Kong University Press, 2009).

He is a sought after scholar as an external reviewer and has presented at numerous conferences both inside and outside the United States.

Dr. Yip was also the UMBC Presidential Teaching Professor in 1994.

Sina Negabaum was chosen to participate in the 2009 NSAISS Seminar. He writes, "It was truly phenomenal I felt so proud to represent UMBC. I was the only Maryland student represented out of a crop of 40 graduate students. Moreover I was the youngest student selected, amongst students who had come from Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and Princeton." Congratulations!
