Li-Ling Yang

Li-Ling is a Senior Scientist. Her academic foundation in physics, coupled with a curiosity for Lavintha’s paradox in protein folding, naturally drew her into microscopy in the first place. She enjoys assembling mirrors, lenses, and other optical elements, and building microscopes tailored for various scales – from single molecules to embryos. Before coming to the IHB in Basel, she was at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany building an inverted lattice light sheet microscope, and then moved to Charité University of Medicine in Berlin, Germany developing a machine learning method for cross-species comparison. At Roche, she supports IHB scientists in imaging and analysis to bring forward organoid research.
