    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Michael Li is a transplant hepatologist and gastroenterologist who specializes in caring for patients with cirrhosis, autoimmune liver disease, and liver cancer.

    Dr. Li’s research focuses on the relationship between the immune system and liver disease. This includes autoimmune diseases like primary sclerosing cholangitis as well as the use of immunotherapy to treat liver cancer. He seeks to perform meaningful clinical and translational research to achieve a better understanding of immune-mediated liver diseases.

    Dr. Li earned his medical degree at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and completed a residency in internal medicine at the Mount Sinai Hospital. He completed a fellowship in gastroenterology at Brigham and Women's Hospital, during which he also earned his MPH degree from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health. He then completed a fellowship in transplant hepatology at UCSF before becoming a faculty member in the UCSF Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
