Department of Systems Biology Seminar
Mingyao Li , PhD, professor of biostatistics in the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, will deliver a talk as part of the DSB Seminar Series.
The central theme of Dr. Li's research is to use statistical and machine learning approaches to understand cellular heterogeneity in human disease relevant tissues, to characterize gene expression diversity across cell types, and to study the patterns of cell state transition and crosstalk of various cells using data generated from single-cell transcriptomics studies. In addition to methods development, Dr. Li is also interested in collaborating with researchers seeking to identify complex disease susceptibility genes. Her collaborative research includes cardiometabolic diseases, age-related macular degeneration, Alzheimer's disease, chronic kidney disease, type 1 diabetes, and cancer. Findings from her research will seed cell-specific functional studies, in vivo modeling, and precision therapeutic targeting of human diseases.
