Xiaojaun Li, PhD, is a Professor in Residence in the Musculoskeletal Quantitative Imaging Research Group in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, the Joint Bioengineering Graduate Program by UC-Berkeley and UCSF, and she is the Director of the Arthritis Imaging Laboratory at the University of California, San Francisco. She received her BS in Biomedical Engineering from Tsinghua University, China in 1996, and she completed her MS in Biomedical Engineering from Tsinghua University in 1999. Dr. Li obtained her PhD in Bioengineering from UCSF in 2003, followed by a postdoctoral research fellowship from UCSF in 2004.
Dr. Li’s research program aims to develop advanced quantitative MRI and MRSI imaging techniques, and evaluating their clinical significance for musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis, acute knee injuries, and osteoporosis. Her research projects include detecting early cartilage degeneration in osteoarthritis, imaging acutely ACL-injured knees, correlating MR imaging with biochemical, molecular and biomechanical in degenerated cartilage, multimodality imaging of rheumatoid arthritis, bone marrow fat and bone quality, intromyocellular lipids quantification, and lipid and osteoarthritis.
Presently, Dr. Li is a member of 6 societies and she serves as a reviewer for more than 17 scientific journals as well as a charter member for NIH study section and a grant reviewer for other national and international institutes. Dr. Li has been award several NIH research grants, and she has published more than 100 peer-reviewed journal articles, 5 book chapters and more than 200 conference abstracts related to her research.
