Research Interests:

  • ​Professor Li‘s research attempts to understand the molecular basis of the regenerative mechanisms that maintain the proper form and function of the human body.
  • His research programs build on a multidisciplinary platform that integrates stem cell models with genome engineering, functional genomics, bioengineering and chemical screening to gain a holistic understanding of regeneration in its broadest sense, while keeping a commitment to fulfilling the translational promise of stem cell research.


  • I received my B.S degree from Peking University.
  • I received his Ph.D. in cellular biology from the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia, USA, in 2007.
  • I studied Drosophila neuroscience at the University of Georgia as a postdoctoral fellow from 2007 to 2009.
  • Since then I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Salk Institute, where my research interests focus on somatic cell reprogramming and genetic correction of human monogenic diseases.
