Huiying Li, Associate Professor at University of California, Los Angeles
Dr. Huiying Li is an Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular & Medical Pharmacology at University of California, Los Angeles. Dr. Li’s research focuses on the role of the skin microbiome in health and disease, including two most common skin diseases, acne vulgaris and atopic dermatitis.
By using a systems biology approach involving genomics, metagenomics, bioinformatics, microbiology, and biochemistry, Dr. Li and her group investigate the genomes, metagenomes, metatranscriptomes, and metabolomes of the microorganisms in the human microbiome and their interactions with the host. The findings from these studies can potentially lead to new diagnostics and interventions for skin diseases.
