Li Cui graduated from the Northeast Agricultural University (China) in 1996 and took her MA degree in animal nutrition. After spending 6 years in Nutrition of unistomach animals, she returned to the Nanjing Agricultural University (China) to study for a PhD in Preventive Veterinary Medicine and began collaboration with the Infection & Immunity research group in Key Laboratory of e animal Epidemiology and immunity of Ministry of Agriculture. Li Cui was appointed as associate professor in Veterinary medicine in 2002. Her work has won several awards, including the second prize for Shanghai Science & Technology Progress in 2003 for her 'The Nursing and Pathogen Purification of Chinese Experimental Miniature Swine'. In addition, Li Cui is chief editor of series 'Tutorial for paramedic of Pet health (Beijing: China Labour and Social Security Publishing House (CLSSPH), 2007.6)'.



Li Cui's research interests centre around animal model of infectious diseases and pathogenesis. Li Cui is currently?investigating Streptococcus suis 2(SS2) and HEV in swine and its products, more specifically working to understand the pathogenesis of SS2 infection in pigs. Li Cui is currently involved in a study?characterising innate immune response genes in?Chinese miniature swine to determine whether these are involved in susceptibility of this breed to various disease syndromes. Alongside this, Li Cui is also examining the genetics of artificial infection responses in pigs; how immune response genes can influence the response to artificial infection. Li Cui was a visiting fellow from July 2008 to September 2009 in The Royal Veterinary College, University of London (UK) since she had been awarded a scholarship from the China Scholarship Council (CSC). During that time her research interests were focused on the impact of the stressors (e.g. physical environment, disease) on physiological responses in domestic pigs.



Li Cui teaches the Clinical Nutrition on the undergraduate of animal biotechnology course as well as contributing to Laboratory Animal Science and Animal Nutrition & Immunology teaching on the graduate student of Preventive Veterinary Medicine. Recognized internationally as one of the trainers and practitioners of NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), Dr. Cui has done training to a wide variety of undergraduate in SJTU.
