En Li  
En Li obtained his Ph.D. degree from MIT in 1992 and joined faculty of Harvard Medical School as a Principal Investigator in 1993. He is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and also an Adjunct Professor of Beijing University where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1984. After working at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he directed a highly productive research laboratory and a mouse gene knockout facility, he now serves as the Global Head of Animal Models of Diseases at the newly established Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

En and his team have made important contributions to the field of epigenetics by discovering a family of DNA methyltransferases that establish DNA methylation patterns in the mammalian genome. Their work has advanced the understanding of how changes of DNA modification may lead to various diseases. His other research interests and expertise include stem cell biology, chromatin remodeling, and TGF-b/BMP signaling pathways in mammalian embryogenesis, angiogenesis, and cancer.
