Ao Li, female, born in March 1986. Visiting Associate Professor of Yale University School of Medicine. 2008 graduated from Beijing Normal University, 2013 received a Ph.D doctorate in Beijing Peking Union Medical College, worked at State Key Laboratory of Molecular Oncology, Cancer Hospital and Institute, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences as assistant Professor during 2013-2016, went to the Yale University School of Medicin College served as Visiting Associate Professor till now. My research focused on genetic disease molecular/cell biology, pathology and pathogenesis of human genetic-related diseases. Since 2009, more many papers have been published in the fields of genetic diseases. As the first author and corresponding author, I have published papers in the world famous magazines, including J. Am. Soc. Nephrol., J Cell Mol Med, Am. J Pathology, International Journal of Genetics et al.
Research Interest
My research focused on the application of molecular technology and well-extended genetic knowledge to unravel the pathogenesis and molecular mechanism of human genetic-related diseases. With strong background and experiences, I have elucidate the molecular mechanisms and pathogenesis of human genetic disease: autosomal dominant polycystic disease (ADPKD) and autosomal recessive polycystic disease (ARPKD). I am also engaged in the application of translational medicine to treat PKD based on my PKD research.
