Dr Li Huan is a lecturer in the Centre of Innovation for Complementary Health Product (COI-CHP) at Temasek Polytechnic. She is proficient in analytical assay development using various analytical instruments for product quality control and herbal product development. She also has experience in 3D human skin tissue and hepatocyte culture for toxicity and efficacy studies.
As a principal investigator, Dr Li has secured a MOE Translational R&D and Innovation Fund (TIF) to develop a proprietary herbal product to treat contact allergic dermatitis. She has led several industry projects to help local SMEs to improve or develop innovative complementary health products. She has completed virucidal activity testing for surface disinfectants and bacteria filtration efficiency test for masks.
Dr Li completed a Bachelor's degree in Pharmaceutical Engineering before receiving her PhD in Chinese Medicine from Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine. In addition, she has also obtained her Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Science from Aston University with First Class Honors. Prior to joining Temasek Polytechnic, she worked on 3D hepatocyte culture for drug toxicity screening in Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, A*STAR.
