Aiqing Li MD., PhD

Naitonal Clinical Research Center for Kidney Disease
Guangdong Provincial Instite for Nephrology

Dr. Aiqing Li is a renal pathologist who works at the Division of Nephrology, Nanfang Hospital, Southern Medical University and also the researcher of National Clinical Research Center for Kidney Disease. Li earned her Ph.D. from the Ohio State University, School of Biological Science in U.S. She then completed a two-year postdoctoral training in Neuroscience at the OSU Medical Center. Dr. Li belongs to Nephrology Branch of Chinese Medical Association, Guangdong Association of Young Scientists, Western Returned Scholars Assoiation of Guangdong, etc. She was selected as a distinguished professor in Guangdong Pearl River Scholar Plan in 2017.

Her research interests mainly lie in crosstalk between brain and kidney in renal and related diseases. The research work range from molecular mechanisms of renal injury to different approaches in the treatment of chronic kidney disease. Currently, Dr. Li is doing some research work in cerebral and renal rennin-angiotensin system in the progress of renal injury in chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury and diabetic nephropathy, etc.
