About the Rong Li Lab

In the Rong Li lab, we strive to understand the fundamental laws governing the behavior and interactions of cellular systems. Our current work focuses on questions pertaining to the molecular and physical basis of self-organization during morphogenesis, and the evolutionary dynamics of cell division pathways. We also work toward applying insights learned from basic research to the understanding and cure of diseases such as cancer and polycystic kidney disease.
