2019-04-03

Dr. Ying Li, who will join the CIBR in Sep. 2019 as a Principal Investigator, has received a Career Development Award from The International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO), one of the five Chinese researchers to receive this prize and work in mainland China since 2003.

The Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) is an international program of research support, funding innovative and cutting edge research at the frontiers of the life sciences. The Career Development Award is to support former HFSP Fellows who return to their home country or move to a third HFSP member country as an independent investigator during early career.

Ying Li studies the neuronal processing of social information in freely behaving animals. Her lab uses the latest brain imaging and single-cell sequencing techniques to understand how environmental social cues are represented in the brain and how emotion influences sensory perception and behavior. Her research was highlighted in the press release for 2019 HFSP Career Development Awards:
