B. Li
The Second Hospital of Jilin University
Dr. Bingjin Li is a graduate of Yanbian University, China. She received her Ph.D. from Ehime University, Japan. She performed postdoc training at Washington State University and is a full professor at the second hospital of Jilin University, China. Her lab uses behavioral and electrophysiological analyses to explore the underlying relationship between neuronal function and behavior. This integrative approach involves the use of molecular biology, biochemistry, immunocytohistochemistry, neurophysiology, anatomy, and a wide range of behavioral methodology to understand the function of the nervous system.

S.S. Thakur
Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology
My research interests involves application of Mass Spectrometry based proteomics in Health and Disease especially biomarker discovery and Drug Development. My group uses mass spectrometry based high throughput quantitative proteomics, natural product chemistry, cell biology, animal model, stem cell, and modern biology approach to find the target, to develop novel drugs and elucidate its mode of action against cancer and other metabolic disorders such as diabetes. Cancer is a hyperplastic condition that leads to uncontrolled proliferation, invasion, metastasis, dysregulation of apoptosis and cell cycle. Cancer is the second leading cause of worldwide human mortality after cardiovascular diseases. We are investigating the efficacy of various natural and synthetic metabolites on melanoma, retinoblastoma, leukaemia, and lung cancer using in vitro and in vivo method including animal model. Further, investigating the molecular basis for Cell adhesion, AKT signalling and tyrosine kinase associated cancer progression and response and resistance to targeted therapy in these cancers is in progress in my lab.
