Research Summary

Professor LI’s research focuses on discovering novel analytical methods for quality control of traditional Chinese medicines. He developed many applicable methods, including macro- and micro-morphological imaging identification technique, DNA molecular marker identification technique, and HPLC fingerprint technique to precisely identify those easily-confused herbs in the herbal markets. Some recently developed methods have been officially adopted and documented in Chinese Pharmacopeia and the United States Pharmacopeia.
