Dr. Li is an Associate Professor at the Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. He earned his master’s Degree in Organic Chemistry in 1991 and his PhD degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 2000. He received his postdoctoral training at the Linus Pauling Institute, Oregon State University, where he worked on molecular mechanisms and chemoprevention of colorectal cancer. Dr. Li’s research interests lie in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a complex GI disease associated with lifelong medical attention, poor quality of life and huge economic burden, as well as in IBD-associated disorders, including colitis-associated cancer and IBD-induced cardiovascular diseases.
