Huabing Li, PhD


Dr. Li graduated from Nankai University with B.S. and M.S. degrees, then obtained his Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry in 2011 in Vincenzo Pirrotta lab at Rutgers, the state University of New Jersey, working on Polycomb mediated long-distance chromatin interactions in Drosophila. He continued his postdoc training with Dr. Richard Flavell at Yale University School of Medicine since 2012, working on regulatory RNAs and RNA epigenetic switches of the immune system. Dr. Li established his independent lab at Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine since 2017. The lab is especially interested in the physiological functions and molecular mechanisms of RNA epigenetic modifications and related RNA binding proteins in immune cells and related immune disease with mouse disease models. Combined with the state-of-the-art technologies and international collaboration, we aim to reveal novel fucntions and mechanisms of inflammation and autoimmune disease, which will contribute to the identification of potential targets for anti-autoimmune and anti-tumor drug development.
