The title of her talk is: “Wnt signal regulation in stem cell and cancer”
The seminar will be held in the Lister & Young Seminar room, 12.30 – 1.30pm.
If you would like to talk to Dr. Li, please contact Gabriella Ficz (email@example.com).
Vivian Li obtained her PhD at the University of Hong Kong in 2008, characterising human colonic development and tumourigenesis. She then received the Croucher Foundation Fellowship to pursue her post-doctoral training in Hans Clevers’ lab at the Hubrecht Institute (the Netherlands), where she studied Wnt regulatory mechanisms in the intestine. Vivian Li is now group leader at the Francis Crick Institute. Her lab investigates signalling regulation of intestinal stem cell and cancer, with primary focus on Wnt signalling pathways. She has recently been award the 2018 Future Leaders in Cancer Research Prize by CRUK for her contribution to bowel cancer research.
