Xiaoguang LI, Ph.D., Professor
School of Public Health
Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine
Prof. Li obtained Ph.D. (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) from Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences (SIBS), Chinese Acdemic of Sciences (CAS), and completed the postdoctoral/preclinical pharmacology and immunology fellowship at SIBS, CAS, China and UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, USA, respectively. In the end of 2016, he joined in School of Public health, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine and exceptionally promoted to full Professor and PhD student Supervisor. Prof. Li’s research focused on Cancer Etiology, Molecular Pharmacology, and Targeted Therapy and resulted in more than 20 peer-reviewed papers.(Nature Genetics, Gut, Nature Communications, Clin Cancer Res, EBiomedicine, etc.) and has filed 6 patents (4 granted). Prof. Li has been awarded research grants and awards from National Natural Science Foundation, the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, Chinese Academy of Sciences, among others. Prof. Li was elected as Shanghai Young Talent Scholar from Organization Department of Party Committee of Shanghai, and Young Eastern Scholar from the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, and was awarded Pujiang Scholars from the Science and Technology Commission of Shanghai.
1) Finding novel chemoprevetion and therapeutic targets of Gastrointestinal Cancer in tumor cell itself and tumor microenvironments (ERBB, PDGFRA, CCR2, NQO1 etc.).
2) Investigate the physiological effects of tumor microenvironment on the tumor cells at distinct stages of tumorigenesis and to elucidate the molecular mechanisms involved in the cell-cell communication among cancer cells and surrounding stromal cells.
