Biography

Dr Chen Li obtained his bachelor’s degree in computer science and technology and master’s degree in computer applied technology from Northwest A&F University, China. Afterwards, Chen completed his PhD with A/Prof Ashley Buckle and A/Prof Jiangning Song at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Monash University in 2016, where he focused on developing bioinformatic algorithms and databases for analysing the relationship between protein structure, function and disease. After completing his PhD study, Chen moved to the laboratories of Prof Anthony Purcell and Prof Jian Li at the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute as a research bioinformatician, and have since extended his research into proteomics and immunopeptidomics.

Chen is now working jointly in the Aebersold Lab at ETH Zurich and the Purcell Lab at Monash University as a CJ Martin Early Career Research Fellow supported by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). His research focuses on integrating proteomics and immunopeptidomics to understand prostate cancer carcinogenesis, diagnosis and treatment.
