Lun Li, M.D., M.S. has recently defended his Ph.D. thesis in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Rutgers, The State University of NJ in Cell Biology, Neuroscience, & Physiology track. He has performed his dissertation research with Drs. Stella Elkabes and Robert F. Heary. He investigated the role of innate immune receptors in astrocyte function at the glial scar and in axonal preservation following spinal cord injury.
Lun received his M.D. degree from Guangzhou Medical University, Guangzhou, China, and M.S. degree from Colorado State University, Pueblo, CO.
