About Lihui Yuan

Lihui Yuan, Pharm.D., Ph.D., joined the University of Florida College of Pharmacy’s department of pharmacodynamics as a clinical lecturer in 2016. She earned her Pharm.D. from the UF College of Pharmacy and a Ph.D. in molecular genetics and microbiology from UF. Her research interests include diabetes, bacterial pathogenesis and hypertension and cardiovascular disease. In her doctorate program, Yuan researched identifying virulence genes of oral bacteria that are related to pathogenesis of periodontal disease. Her recent research with the department of pathology at UF has focused on establishing associations of viral infections and Type 1 diabetes. Yuan has expressed a passion for teaching and patient care, and she believes that the combination of her understanding of basic science and Pharm.D. training will serve her students well.
