Research Profile

Dr. Tao Li received his Ph.D. degree on Jan/2011 in Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences under the supervision of Prof. Erkang Wang. Then, he worked as a Humboldt fellow in University of Bonn in Germany and a postdoctoral research fellow in Arizona State University in United States. From Jul/2015, he worked as a PI in University of Science and Technology of China. He has shown broad research interests in biosensors based on functional nucleic acids (aptamers, DNAzymes, G-quadruplexes and i-motif), DNA logic and nanomechanical devices. To date, he has published over 40 peer-reviewed papers, with 2500+ citations and H-index 29.
