Current Role at Stanford The main project of the Li lab is to elucidate the signaling pathways responsible for maintaining and initiating brain tumor growth. Previously the Li lab has identified an interesting protein, known as casein kinase 2, which plays an integral role in adult brain tumor growth. My goal is to expand on this initial finding and determine if casein kinase 2 could be a therapeutically relevant drug target in adult brain tumors and whether this protein plays a role in pediatric brain tumors. The role of the candidate would be the lead researcher on these projects, as well as managing and leading the undergraduate and medical students in the lab. In addition, I am responsible for maintaining the laboratory and assisting in grant writing.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interests are in neuroengineering and its application to both basic and clinical neuroscience. The goal of my work is to develop communication and motor prosthetics for people suffering from limb paralysis. Specifically, I focus on the development and translation of intracortical neural prosthetics.
