Wenshu Li is Assistant Professor of Practice of Biology at NYU Shanghai. Prior to joining NYU Shanghai, she was a visiting scholar in the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago. She holds a PhD from the State Key Laboratory of Genetic Engineering at Fudan University and a BS from Jilin University.
Her research interests are cancer biology and stem cell biology, focusing on the mechanism of tumorigenesis and metastasis, the molecular pathways that control the self-renewal, and proliferation of cells. Her article, “Apc Regulates the Function of Hematopoietic Stem Cells Largely Through β-Catenin-Dependent Mechanisms" was published inBlood.
She is a member of the Shanghai Genetics Society.
