Dr. Daqing Li

Dr. Daqing Li is a cell culture specialist working at the Spinal Repair Unit, the Department of Brain Repair and Rehabilitation, UCL Institute of Neurology.

Dr. Li carries out the central role of culturing and characterising the rat and human olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) and their preparation for transfer to the site of injury.  He collaborated with Dr. Pawel Tabakow and his team to grow the OECs for the first successful case of autologous transplantation of the OECs to treat spinal cord injury.

Dr. Li is now working closely with colleagues to prepare for the treatment of more patients. This preparation includes efforts to improve techniques of tissue acquisition, cell culture and efficient use of the limited cell numbers with fabrication of cellular-biomaterial scaffolds.
