Jinpeng Li, Ph.D., is a cellular and molecular toxicologist interested in better understanding and promoting the safe use of chemicals to protect as well as enhance public health.
Li completed his postdoctoral training in Toxicology and Environmental Research and Consulting at the Dow Chemical Company, where he worked to advance predictive toxicology by developing new approaches and methodologies, including a state-of-the-art 3D spheroid liver cell culture system to predict hepatotoxicity and an integrated testing strategy for assessing developmental neurotoxicity.
Li received his Ph.D. in Genetics and Environmental Toxicology from Michigan State University in 2017. His dissertation research project involved establishing an innovative model to assess the effects of chemicals on the development of the human immune system and investigating the underlying molecular mechanisms.
Li has authored 11 peer-reviewed publications and has been a member of the Society of Toxicology since 2012.
