Special Interests

The majority of Dr. Li’s current research is a) to define the specific CBD and sarcoidosis disease gene profiles and their function, b) to investigate the potential molecular and immunopathogenetic mechanisms suggested by these studies, and c) to identify possible surrogate biomarkers of CBD and sarcoidosis in the future. She strongly believe that by revealing the mechanisms of the granulomatous diseases, it will not only aid in the prevention or early diagnosis of CBD and sarcoidosis, but also provide insights into the potential therapeutic applications.  It is also her goal to extend the results of the biomarker investigation by testing its application for use as a future clinical diagnostic.

Patient Ratings

The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our independent rating system, the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. This survey is about the patient care experience and does not address crucial characteristics like medical decision-making, prescribing the best therapy, and patient outcomes.

Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the best score. Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey.
