Li Li Ji is Professor and Director of the Laboratory of Physiological Hygiene and Exercise in the School of Kinesiology since 2011. He served as the Director of School of Kinesiology during 2011-2017. Dr. Ji graduated from East China Normal University, received his MS and PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1982 and 1985, respectively, specializing in exercise physiology. During 1985-1987 he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Enzyme Research of UW-Madison. He served as Assistant and Associate Professor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign during 1987-1993 and returned to UW-Madison as Associate Professor in 1994. Dr. Ji was Professor of Exercise Physiology in the Biodynamics Laboratory from 1997-2011 and was elected as the Chair of Department of Kinesiology for four terms during 1994-1997 and 2003-2010.

Dr. Ji’s research expertise is cellular and molecular exercise physiology, especially the role of free radicals and antioxidants in muscle function, adaptation to exercise, pathogenesis and prevention, cell signaling and aging. Dr. Ji has published over 150
peer-reviewed articles and 23 book chapters, and given over 160 invited international and domestic lectures. His publications appeared in top-tier scientific journals such as the Journal of Clinical Investigation, FESAB Journal, Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Free Radical Biology and Medicine, Journal of Physiology, and American Journal of Physiology. Dr. Ji’s contribution to exercise biochemistry spans over three decades, ranging from free radical generation and oxidative stress during exercise and aging, gene regulation of antioxidant enzymes, redox signaling of homeostasis and hormesis, to the role of nutrition and phytochemicals. His recent research is focused on mitochondrial quality control and its relationship with exercise adaptation, muscle atrophy and aging. Dr. Ji has served on multiple editorial boards and study sections of federal agencies and private foundations. He is a member of the National Academy of Kinesiology since 2006 and a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine since 1990.
