Welcome to the Li Lab!

We build DNA-based molecular tools to study how cells physically interact using single-molecule and quantitative imaging methods. We deploy these tools to study mechanical cellular processes involved in diseases such as cancer. The lab works at the interface of cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics, nanotechnology, and bioengineering. Talents from all backgrounds are welcomed!

We are hosting the Okanagan Biophysics Conference (OKBC2022), to promote and showcase biophysics. Everyone's welcome to join us in person and virtually! Please visit the conference website for more details.
