Graduated from Hunan University, I am a member of the 2015 CLS program. My first coming can be traced back to the CLS/McG summer school two years ago. I enjoy my stay here that much, where the people are lovely, and works are really fancy. Recently my focus is many paid on the development of new GPCR probe.


Graduate from School of Life Sciences at Peking University. Now a CLS graduate student. Working on development and application of genetically encoded sensors.


I got the Bachelor degree of Science from School of Life Sciences, Peking University and join Li Lab in 2015. My research focuses on developing genetically-based fluorescent sensors as well as deciphering neural circuit in model organisms utilizing these newly-developed tools. Enjoy both Life and Science.


Graduated from Tongji University. Now I'm a graduate student in School of Life Sciences, Peking University. Love life and love freedom.And I'm very interested in projects in Li Lab and glad to improve myself by studing further.


I received my bachelor's degree in Innovation and Experimental College, Northwest A&F University in 2017. Following the interest of neuroscience, I'm a Ph.D graduate student of the 2017 CLS Program at Peking University. At present, I mainly use the cell biology and behavioral methods to study the distribution and function of G protein coupled receptors associated with somatosensation.


I graduated from Lanzhou University and became a graduate student in School of Life Sciences, Peking University in 2017. My main research interests in neurobiology including two aspects: development and application of novel molecular tools, study of neural circuits. Now I focus on development and application of genetically encoded sensors.
