    Jingjing Li, Ph.D.

    Principal Investigator

    Associate Professor

    Department of Neurology, School of Medicine

    the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research

    the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute

    the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy

    University of California, San Francisco


    My predoctoral training was in machine learning, and received Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics from the University of Toronto. I joined Dr. Michael Snyder's group at Stanford Genetics as a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow, where I developed multi-omics strategies to identify molecular components in complex human diseases. I later received training in clinical research as an Instructor at Stanford Pediatrics, where I developed genomic approaches to solve neonatal conditions.


    The main theme of my research is large-scale analysis of disease genomes by integrating multi-omics data, evolutionary insights, electronic health records, as well as digitized clinical traits from imaging and wearable sensor readouts. The ultimate goal is to build a data-driven framework to detect diseases before symptoms emerge and to achieve precision health management.
