Dr Xu Li is currently a research assistant (Level A) in the Gras Group in Bio21 and the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at University of Melbourne.
Dr Xu Li had a 3-year McKenzie Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The University of Melbourne.
Dr Xu Li member of the group awarded the Eureka prize (2012) in Innovative Use of Technology. Presented annually by the Australian Museum, the Eureka Prizes reward excellence in the fields of scientific research & innovation, science leadership, school science and science journalism & communication.
Dr Xu Li, a McKenzie Fellow in Dr Sally Gras' Group was one of the team members who won the prize for Innovative Use of Technology whilst she was a PhD student at Monash University with Dr Wei Shen. A summary of their winning project can be found on the Australian Museum website [http://eureka.australianmuseum.net.au]
