Dr Yang Li
Dr Yang Li was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Critical Care and Trauma Division at the George Institute managing the Intensive Insulin Therapy Trialists Collaboration (IIT-TC) project between 2010 and 2014.
The IIT-TC project was designed to combine individual patient data from all randomised controlled trials of tight glucose control in critically ill adults around the world to conduct individual patient meta-analysis aiming to provide the most robust and reliable evidence possible to address the hypothesis that tight glycaemic control reduces all-cause mortality in both critically ill adults overall, and in predefined subgroups.
Prior to her career as a researcher Yang was a medical practitioner and received doctoral training in Epidemiology at the University of Sydney. Before joining The George Institute, Yang had taken different research positions at The University of New South Wales, The University of Technology, Sydney, and The University of Sydney etc.
Yang is interested in epidemiology and biostatistics. She is experienced in data management, large data handling and statistical analysis. Yang’s current research focus is investigating associations between risk factors and related health outcomes by conducting quantitative analyses.
