Jun Li, Ph.D


I got my Ph.D in Analytical Chemistry at the Institute of Chemistry, CAS in 2007, and my research interests focused on the enhancing of peptide signal response in MALDI-Tof-MS by derivatization with various derivatives.
In March 2009, I came to US. My research interest is the proteomic investigation by using various analytical technologies, currently focused on the proteomic-scale identification and quantification of effector proteins/biomarkers in highly complex biological samples.
