Wei Li, PhD
Division of Hematology and Oncology
Assistant Professor, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Dr. Wei Li’s laboratory is interested in studying intercellular interactions during tissue homeostasis and determining how de-regulated interactions among cells promote cell transformation and tumor progression. His research integrates molecular, cellular and biochemical approaches in combination with mouse tumorigenesis models. Currently, Dr. Li’s laboratory focuses on elucidating the regulation and function of the Hippo tumor suppressor pathway in brain tumors. The goal of Dr. Li’s research is to find molecular targets and biomarkers for cancer therapy.
