Prof. Jia Li
Capital Institute of Pediatrics,China
Jia Li obtain her Bachelor degree from Peking University School of Medicine in 1984. After graduation, she worked as a pediatric cardiologist in an Zhen Hospital in Beijing China for 11 years. In 1995, she was sent to the Department Pediatric Cardiology at Royal Brompton Hospital in London UK and worked as a clinical and research fellow. Her research focused on anatomical and clinical correlations in congenital heart disease. In 1997, she started her PhD thesis on the balance of systemic oxygen transport in children after cardiopulmonary bypass, and obtain PhD degree from Imperial College School of Medicine. In 2002-2008, she worked as Research Associate and subsequently Assistant Professor in of pediatric cardiology at University of Toronto and Hospital for Sick Children and University of Toronto. In 2009, she became an Associate Professor in University of Alberta and Stollery Childrens Hospital. In 2013, she was awarded as Talented Expert by Beijing Overseas Talent Gathering Project when returning back to China and worked as Professor at Clinical Physiology Research Laboratory, Capital Institute of Paediatrics until now. Jia Li has deeply engaged in clinical pathophysiological studies in the past 20 years, focusing on the balance of systemic and regional oxygen transport in critically ill children after cardiopulmonary bypass. Since back to China, a natural progression of her research interest has been on high altitude hypoxia related pathophysiological alterations. She has published 113 papers, and most of them are as are first author or corresponding author in high impact journals.
Research Interest :
Systemic and regional oxygen transport in critically ill children, and oxygen transport and adaptation in healthy and sick children at high altitude.
