Apr. 17, 2024

from clipboard

Speaker: Tristan Qingyun Li, PhD, Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Genetics, School of Medicine, Washington University in St. Louis

Time: 10:00-11:00 a.m., April 17, 2024, GMT+8

Venue: Rm. B106, Lui Che-woo Building, PKU


Dr. Li's research interests lie broadly in neuroimmunology, with a specific focus on microglial biology in health and diseases. He earned a PhD with Prof. Pelin Volkan at Duke University and then had postdoctoral training with the late Prof.Ben Barres at Stanford University. Dr. Li has recently developed a novel mouse model, Clec7a-CreERT2, which enables, for the first time, to label, track, and manipulate disease-associated microglial states in real time and over the long term (Barclay et al. Immunity 2024). His lab has comprehensively characterized this model in developmental and various disease contexts, opening up numerous exciting opportunities. In the long term, Dr. Li aims at fundamental questions about microglial gene regulation, plasticity, and function, which has translational potentials.
