My name is Li Du and I am currently working as a staff scientist in Beckman Research Institute City of Hope. My research focuses on endocrine and hormone-related cancer. (Please refer to the attached resume for more details of my research and publications). I have reviewed several manuscripts for EES journals. I find that manuscript reviewing is very helpful for improving research experience and building my future academic career.
