Dr. Li received her Ph.D. degree in biochemistry and molecular biology from Fudan University in 2019, and then joined Dr. Park’s lab as a postdoctoral fellow. Dr. Li is mainly focused on cytokine and chemokine mediated T cell development and homeostasis. Dr. Li is utilizing cutting-edge techniques such as RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq to address these questions, and she aims to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in T cell development and function by deeply excavating the genomic and proteomic changes in the process of T cell maturation and differentiation.
