Rong Li


Career Development Fellow

I am a Career Development Fellow funded by Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (CAMS) Innovation Fund for Medical Science (CIFMS) based in MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM).

From 2018 to 2021, I was a Bloodwise-funded Postdoctoral Researcher working with Adam Mead and Bethan Psaila in WIMM. Prior to this, I was working towards my PhD from 2013-2018 in Peking Union Medical College in China. My DPhil research was mainly focused on the role of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in the progression of MPN. I developed extensive experience in MSC and haematopoietic stem cell assays, as well as MPN mouse models. 

During my postdoctoral research, my research has focused on characterizing the role of megakaryocytes and how their interaction with stromal cells underlies the progression of myelofibrosis via single cell multi-omics techniques including 10x single cell sequencing, TARGET-seq and single cell ATAC-seq.
