Dr. Chao Li is a Lecturer of the college of Food Engineering and Biotechnology, Tianjin University of Science and Technology. Dr. Li completed Bachelor and Master Degrees from Tianjin University of Science and Technology at 2006 and 2009. Dr. Li received his doctoral degree from Tianjin University of Science and Technology at 2011. On the completion of his PhD, Dr. Li worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Tianjin Engineering Center of food processing. Since 2014, Dr Li is employed by Tianjin University of Science & Technology as a lecture. He published 14 scientific papers and applied for 3 items of Chinese invention patents. Dr. Li hosts several findings such as the National Natural Science Foundation of China, China Postdoctoral Science Foundation, the Basic Research Finding of Tianjin High School.
Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) widely existed in the human intestinal and fermentation food, which have a long history of use in food products. These strains generally play an important role in the health of the host, such as immunomodulatory, inhibition of inflammation and intestinal infections, antimicrobial, etc. These results had been confirmed in some clinical conditions. Moreover, some reports showed that probiotic characteristics usually related to strain specificity and its metabolites (exopolysaccharides, EPS). Thus, Dr. Li focused on the screening of special physiological active strains and research on their mechanism. Furthermore, the structure and function of EPS were analyzed to reveal its structure-activity relationship.
