Calvin Li obtained his PhD at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. His graduate work established a brain neuron protein as a synapse-specific, clathrin coated vesicle-assemble regulator. He has been a pioneer in caveolae-regulated signal transduction research as a postdoctoral fellow supported by NIH-individual national research service award (NRSA) at the Whitehead Institute of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T). As a research fellow at the Harvard University Medical School, he pursued mechanisms of caveolin-mediated signaling events related to cancer. His numerous publications are among the most-frequently-cited research articles as the model system in the caveolae research field. He is an inventor for numerous patent applications.
