Biographical Narrative

Dr. Li's research interests have been centered on glycobiology and glycopathology. Through the study of glycosidases and glycoconjugates, he has made several important contributions to the field of inborn lysosomal diseases. He has also studied glycosidases and glycoconjugates associated with neoplasia. His laboratory has been supported by the same R01 grant from the NIH for the past 36 years and has received two Merit Awards (Jarvitz Neuroscience Investigator Awards).
