Yingfu Li Lab | Functional Nucleic Acid Research Group
Yingfu Li Lab is a dynamic and motivated research group consisting of research technicians, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduate students. The group continues to innovate with DNA by making various DNA-based enzymes (DNAzymes) and receptors (DNA aptamers) and exploring them for diverse applications.
Our research has been funded by several granting agencies in Canada including the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR), the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE), the Sentinel Bioactive Paper Network, and the Canadian Cancer Society (CSC).
We have also been collaborating with several Canadian biotech companies to develop point-of-care diagnostic devices using DNA aptamers and DNAzymes.
