Dr Meina Li is a research fellow in the department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of Melbourne. She finished her master study in Peking University with a great focus on screening anti-inflammatory ingredient from Transitional Chinese Medicine.
She completed her PhD studies at the University of Melbourne in 2018 in Professor Alastair Stewart’s lab. Her PhD project examined determinants of steroid sensitivity, particularly in airway structural cells and was leading translational research projects seeking novel treatments for steroid resistance. The novel findings in her research studies resulted in over 10 papers, and presented her work in couple of international and national conferences. She just started her academic career and is involved in many scientific community, including American Thoracic Society (ATS), The Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ), Australia Chinese Association for Biomedical Sciences (ACABS).
