Dr. William Li Massachusetts
William Li

Hailed as one of the world's most visionary medical researchers, Dr. William Li is re-conceptualizing global disease fighting by aiming at a disease common denominator: angiogenesis, the process used by the body to grow blood vessels.

Whenever there is excessive or insufficient blood vessel growth, serious health issues arise, and many of society's most devastating diseases - cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, to name a few - share faulty angiogenesis as an underlying problem. For three decades, Dr. Li has been leading worldwide efforts to conquer "unbeatable" diseases by restoring the body's control over angiogenesis. The results have been groundbreaking: 27 new transformative treatments for cancer, blindness and wounds that have literally changed the game for patients, doctors and society.

As President, Medical Director and co-founder of the Angiogenesis Foundation, a nonprofit organization, Dr. Li has developed a unique social enterprise model that drives innovation and creates results through collaboration with academia, government, associations and industry. Works with the world's leading scientists, doctors, health policymakers,and industrial innovators across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Latin America, Dr. Li is now leading the Foundation to bring about the next generation of breakthroughs for conditions such as obesity, Alzheimer's disease and heart disease. The New York Times identified Dr. Li "one of the top 10 with the potential for changing the world in the next 10 years."

Dr. Li received his undergraduate degree with honors in Biochemistry from Harvard College and his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pennsylvania. He completed his internship and residency training in General Internal Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Dr. Li has held appointments on the faculties of Harvard University, Harvard Medical School, Tufts University and Dartmouth Medical School. He is widely published in leading peer-reviewed journals such as Science, Lancet, New England Journal of Medicine, Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology, Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, the International Wound Journal, among many others.

Dr. Li is a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, serves as an expert resource to the FDA, NIH, CMS and Capitol Hill and lectures around the world to corporate, professional and public audiences. Dr. Li has given a highly popular TED Talk that has garnered over 3 million views. He is a medical advisor to Emmy-winning The Dr. Oz Show and is a regular guest on the show. Dr. Li's work has impacted more than 50 million people worldwide.
