His team focused on the development of new technique of repairing peripheral nerve defect with new nerve graft and they became one of the first research groups to develop nerve graft with chitosan. They were also the first to use this graft in clinical treatment and have solved the problems about peripheral nerve defect which troubled the world for more than a century. Their core technique has gained Chinese invention patents and European invention patents; it was also included in more than 30 monographs and textbooks. All their efforts have made Chinese tissue engineering nerve study keep in international forefront.

Professor Gu Xiaosong has been awarded the first National Outstanding Youth Science Foundation. In recent years, he has directed 99 provincial and ministerial level scientific research projects, including 3 National 863 Plan projects, 2 National 973 projects, 3 key projects of National Natural Science Foundation, 64 projects of National Natural Science Foundation and Youth Science Foundation. His researches have won the second prize of National Technological Innovation Award in 2012, and the Science and Technology Awards of the Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation in 2014.
