Yulong Li (Chinese: 李毓龙; born in 1978) is a Chinese neuroscientist. Currently he is a professor in the School of Life Sciences at Peking University, a principal investigator of PKU-THU Center for Life Sciences and IDG/McGovern Institute for Brain Research at Peking University.

Education and early life

Li was born and raised in Fujian Province, China. He received his B.S. with a major in biophysics and physiology at Peking University in 2000. He joined George Augustine’s lab at Duke University and received his Ph.D. in 2006. From 2006 to 2012, he conducted his postdoctoral research in Richard Tsien’s lab at Stanford University.


In 2012, Li joined Peking University as a principal investigator. His research interests focus on developing advanced biophotonic sensors to understand the communication between neurons. His group has developed a series of novel genetically-encoded fluorescent sensors for real-time detection of neurotransmitters and neuromodulators in vivo, such as ACh, DA and NE, called GRAB (GPCR activation based) sensors. His group also developed the first entire genetically-encoded optogenetic method PARIS (pairing actuators and receivers to optically isolate gap junctions) for functionally mapping gap junctions. Besides the tool development, his group is also interested in the functions of GPCRs. They are one of the groups independently deorphanized primate specific Mas-related GPCR member X4 (MRGPRX4) with its native substrate bile acids, and identified its physiological function in mediating cholestatic itch.
