Lingjun Li honored with Romnes award

Mar. 25, 2011

Lingjun Li, PhD, associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences, is one of thirteen tenured faculty honored with Romnes awards. The Romnes awards recognize exceptional faculty members who have earned tenure within the last four years. Selected by a Graduate School committee, winners receive an unrestricted $50,000 award for research, supported by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF).

Li’s research focuses on developing novel mass spectrometry-based tools in conjunction with micro-separation techniques to study challenging neuroscience problems, such as functional discovery of neuropeptides and biomarker discovery in neurodegenerative diseases.

Li is a Waisman Center investigator and part of the Center’s Molecular and Genetic Sciences Group.

The award is named for the late H.I. Romnes, former chair of the board of AT&T and former president of the WARF board of trustees.
