Dr. Jun Li is a research scientist in Departments of Nutrition and Epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH). The main area of her research focuses on the identification of risk factors for prevention of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD), with particular interest and skills on high-dimensional omics research.

Dr. Li is currently leading several projects identifying genomic, metabolomic, dietary, and lifestyle risk factors for T2D and CVD in the Nurses' Health Studies (NHS), Health Professional Follow-up Study, PREDIMED study, Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos, and the UK Biobank. Her research interests also extend to the new area of systems epidemiology and multi-omics integration. She is adopting new methodologies to integrate multi-omics data (including genetics, epigenetics, metabolomics, and gut microbiome) for the interpretation of disease etiology and identification of mechanisms through which diet/lifestyle factors impact cardiometabolic health.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
