Chuanyou Li

Dr. Chuanyou Li received his Ph. D. in Genetics at the Institute of Genetics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 1999. He did his post-doc training from1999 to 2003 in the DOE-Plant Research Laboratory (PRL) at Michigan State University. Since 2003, he serves as a professor and group leader at the State Key Laboratory of Plant Genomics, Institute of Genetics & Developmental Biology, CAS. Research in the Chuanyou Li laboratory is aimed at understanding the action mechanisms of jasmonate, which plays vital roles in regulating plant immunity and a wide range of developmental processes. Dr. Li and his colleagues found that the long-distance mobile signal in regulating systemic plant immunity is jasmonate, rather than the peptide systemin. They also connected the PLETHORA stem cell transcription factor pathway with jasmonate signaling and illustrated a molecular framework for jasmonate-induced regulation of root adaptive growth through interaction with the growth hormone auxin. He has published more than 80 research papers in journals such as Nature, Nature Genetics, PNAS, Plant Cell and PLoS Genetics, which received more than 4000 citations. Dr. Li serves as editor for several international journals including Molecular Plant, Plant Molecular Biology and Annals of Botany.
