Associate Professor Shi Ying Li is the Vice-Head of the Department of Ophthalmology, Chair Assistant of Southwest Eye Hospital (SEH), and Head of the Stem Cell Group II (vitrectomy and retina disease). Dr Li completed a visual electrophysiology fellowship at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London supervised by Professor Graham Holder and Dr Anthony Robson between 2012-2013, supported by the laboratory visiting grant of International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV). Now he serves as the Chair of Visual Physiology Committee in the Chinese Ophthalmology Society (COS), and member at large of ISCEV. Dr Li has been a Principal Investigator for many national grants and international clinical trials about retinal diseases. Dr Li has published more than 50 papers in international and Chinese peer review journals and was involved in the edition of five books.
