Welcome to the Li Lab!

We build DNA-based molecular tools to study how cells physically interact using state-of-the-art single-molecule and quantitative imaging methods. We are applying these tools and new methods to study embronic development and tumour methastasis. In parallel, we are also applying what we learn to develop biomedical tools for early disease diagnosis. The lab works at the interface of cell biology, physical chemistry, biophysics, nanotechnology, and bioengineering. Talents from all backgrounds are welcomed!
