Dr. Yun Li
As a Principal Scientist, Yun Li puts her experience in virology and microbiology to work to develop new bioassays and conduct efficacy studies of novel drugs and vaccines. Yun is a molecular biologist with extensive research background in molecular virology, immunology, microbiology and biochemistry. She has worked in both academic and industry settings. Much of her previous research focused on the study of HIV replication and development of potential vaccines. At Battelle, Yun is applying this background to help our client companies with drug discovery. Much of her work is focused on developing cell-based immunoassays to evaluate immune response to candidate vaccines against viral infections, including alphavirus and filovirus. Her broad prior experiences with a wide range of bacteria and viruses give her an ideal background for helping pharmaceutical companies discover novel therapies and vaccines.
