Dr. Lei Li graduated from Shandong University in China in 2005 with a B.S. degree in Biotechnology. He then received his Ph.D. degree in Microbiology in State Key Laboratory of Microbial Technology at Shandong University in 2010. During the Ph.D. program, he joined Dr. Peng George Wang's group at The Ohio State University as a visiting scholar from 2007 to 2009, where he worked on elucidating the biosynthetic pathway of lipopolysaccharides and synthesis of biomedical-related glycans. He then spent two years at Nankai University as a Postdoctoral Associate, focusing on chemoenzymatic synthesis of complex glycans and sugar nucleotides. In 2013, he joined Dr. Peng George Wang's lab at Georgia State University as Research Scientist I and was promoted to Senior Research Scientist in 2018. He developed independent research programs in microbial glycobiology and glycomics under the support of NIH. In 2020, he joined Department of Chemistry as an Assistant Professor. His research interest includes expedited synthesis of complex carbohydrates and glycoconjugates, glycomics tools to elucidate glycan-protein interactions, as well as carbohydrate-related vaccines and therapeutics against antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Dr. Jinghua Han
Postdoctoral Fellow in Carbohydrate Chemistry
