Prof. Li’s research interests include implantable technology and neuromodulation. He leads a multi-disciplinary group, and is devoted to provide the best neuromodulation treatment for patients in developing countries as well as the whole world. His group designed and fabricated the first deep brain stimulation devices in China. The first Chinese brain pacemaker they developed were certificated by Chinese FDA in 2013 after more than ten years R&D. He also led the group to design and fabricate the first implant-rechargeable neuromodulation device in China, which was certificated in July, 2014. To date, these devices have already been used in more than 71 hospitals in China. Recently, his group further succeeded in developing several cutting-edge brain stimulation technologies, including the deep brain stimulation device enabling in situ local field potential recording during stimulation, the first remote programming system for neuromodulation across China, the first 3.0 T MRI compatible device and the novel variant-frequency stimulation paradigm using alternating low- and high-frequency stimulation. These achievements can not only benefit the patients with improved treatment, meet their urgent medical needs, but also open up a window to study the mechanisms underlying many brain related diseases and provide a unique opportunity for the brain science research.
