Dr. Liyun Li graduated Phi Beta Kappa from MIT and received her medical degree with honors from Harvard Medical School, where she studied stem cell biology and cultivated a keen clinical interest in women’s health.
After serving as a resident in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, San Francisco, Dr. Li completed her reproductive endocrinology and infertility fellowship at Columbia University Medical Center, where she trained under the guidance of some of the most respected pioneers in the fields of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and egg donation.
During fellowship, her research focused on how obesity and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affect egg and embryo health. Dr. Li treats all forms of reproductive disorders with special interests in PCOS, fertility preservation, and egg donation.
Dr. Li is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, a fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (SREI).
In 2012, Dr. Li was awarded the Best Practicing Physician Research Award for her research presentation on Vitamin D at the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society (PCRS) Annual Meeting.
Although proud to be a Canadian, Dr. Li grew up in Shanghai, China, and speaks fluent Mandarin Chinese. While recognizing that infertility is an affliction that is blind to one’s ethnic and racial background, she is especially sensitive to the unique cultural and psychosocial implications of infertility pertaining to Asian families.
