Dr. Qiao Li received her M.D. and M.Sc. in 1982 and 1986 respectively, from the Norman Bethune University of Medical Sciences of China. She then received her Ph.D. in 1996 from the Karolinska Institute of Sweden, and continued her research in the field of chromatin and gene regulation with Dr. Alan Wolffe at the National Institutes of Health of U.S.A. till 1999. Thereafter, she relocated to Canada and established her independent research program at the University of Ottawa. Dr. Li has devoted her research efforts to the regulatory mechanisms of gene expression. She has made important contributions to the understanding of how chromatin dynamics and various signaling pathways crosstalk and how cells respond to regulatory signals in the context of chromatin. Recently, her research team has focused on how chromatin dynamics and different signaling pathways converge to direct stem cell differentiation. Her long term goal is to develop approaches and efficient non-toxic protocols to direct stem cell differentiation for therapeutic uses in devastating morbidities, including musculoskeletal and cardiovascular diseases. She has received numerous awards and research grants from the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, the National Science and Engineering Research Council, Canada Foundation for Innovation, Ontario Innovation Trust, and the Cancer research Society. She has authored hundreds of research articles, book chapters and abstracts, and has delivered many invited presentations on various aspects of her research discoveries
