Jianjun Li is a Senior Research Officer and the Head of the Glycoanalysis-MS Facility in the Glycobiology Program at the Institute for Biological Sciences, National Research Council Canada (NRC-IBS). He received a Ph.D. degree in analytical chemistry from Wuhan University, China, in 1990. Dr. Li’s research has involved the development of high-resolution separation techniques coupled with mass spectrometry and their applications to the structural characterization of various biologically molecules. He has been involved in the development of chip-based capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry (Chip-CE/MS) systems. He has also successfully integrated different functional materials such as C18, MAbs, and IMAC beads onto a chip channel to perform preconcentration chip-CE/MS with applications to functional proteomics. Since 2001, Dr. Li has focused his research projects on functional glycomics, an emerging field of glycobiology that combines the disciplines of both carbohydrate chemistry and molecular biology to study and understand the structure, biosynthesis, and biological function of glycans. He authored/coauthored more than 130 original peer-reviewed scientific papers and 5 book chapters.
