Dr. Li Lin spent 4 years involved in skin-related research and the set-up of clinical-testing facilities at Procter & Gamble Singapore from 2005. She moved to Queensland in 2009 to pursue higher education and has graduated with a PhD in biomedical engineering from The University of Queensland, supervised by A/Prof Tarl Prow (Deputy Director of Dermatology Research Centre and Prof H. Peter Soyer (Director of Dermatology Research Centre and Chair of Dermatology Department at Princess Alexandra Hospital). Her PhD training was focused on the development of a new micro-sized skin biopsy device for molecular diagnosis of skin diseases. She is currently a NHMRC Peter Doherty ECR Fellow at The University of Queensland whose research interest is to develop new technologies with focus on drug delivery, diagnostics and imaging in the context of dermatology.
