UCSF postdoctoral scholar Lishi Li

Lishi Li, PhD

Postdoctoral Scholar

As an incoming postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Lu’s laboratory, my previous work was focused on the impact of A-to-I miRNA editing on T cells functions in peripheral blood and tumor microenvironment of Hepatocellular Carcinoma. I also investigated the heterogeneity of tumor microenvironment of metastatic melanoma, and the metastatic mechanism of circulating tumor cells (CTC) in melanoma with Single-cell sequencing.

My future work in Dr. Lu’s Lab will focus on investigating the mechanism of immunosuppression that mediated by macrophage and NK cells in glioblastoma.
