Position Title

Radiation Oncology


Dr. Li's Research interests include the study of the molecular mechanisms causing tumor resistance to radiation and chemotherapy. A prosurvival signaling network regulated by the transcription factor NF-kB and the mitochondrial protein influx is being investigated in radiation-induced adaptive response in normal cells and in the radiation-resistant cancer stem cells. The goal of these studies is to find therapeutic targets to enhance the cure rate by radiotherapy.
