Instructors and Research Associates

Yulin Li Yulin Li, MD, PhD
Dr. Li has discovered the critical role of miR-17-92 in mediating MYC oncogene addiction. In collaboration with Dr. David Dill, he has also developed computational approaches to study the differentiation states of cancer cells. His research goal is to discover novel cancer therapeutics based on a mechanistic understanding of tumorigenesis. View more details.
