Li Yu, male, born in 1944, from Jinan City, Shandong Province, the Han nationality,member of CPC, a Master of Science of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Doctor of Agriculture of University of Tsukuba in Japan, Academician of China Academy of Engineering, Foreign Academician of Russian Academy of Science. Professor and Doctoral Supervisor of Jilin Agricultural University, Chairman of International Medicinal Mushroom Academy, member of Appraisal Group on Discipline for the Fourth, Fifth Academic Degrees Committee of State Council, Chief Editor of Journal of Fungal Research, editorial board member of Mycosystema (to 2009) and International Medicinal Mushroom, State-level Young & Middle-aged Technology (Management) Experts with Distinctive Contributions, National Excellent Educator and Scientific & Technical Worker, National Renowned Teacher, and Director of Breeding Laboratory of National Industry Technology System for Edible Fungi.

Li Yu has devoted to engineering technology and industrialization of fungi science and edible fungi for more than 30 years, researching and solving the difficulties of engineering technology of north edible fungus, and promoted industrial upgrading of edible fungi by combining basic theory and application technology, based on innovation results. He has successfully built genetic resources center of fungi at the front ranks of China; where only slime molds has been reported for more than 400 species, accounting for two-thirds of the world's known species, and 46 new species has been published; new species not named by Chinese, is 1/17 of the total number of new species internationally published in recent years; he has published 2 first-level monograph with "catalogue" which is unique in domestic and overseas, first English monograph of this field and Chinese Fungi Records-Slime Molds Volume. "Systematic study on representative species of slime mold" and "Systematics research on important slime molds groups" were respectively given the second prize of National Natural Science Award, first prize of Jilin Science and Technology Progress Award. More than 50 breeds have been selected and cultivated in the filed of edible fungi and 6 have passed national check; he has creatively improved 8 key technologies such as black fungi cultivation under full sunshine and changed traditional cultivation mode; he has established 26 demonstration bases for production, promoted and demonstrated with "five in one" mode, guided and more than 8,000 person-time for technical backbone, mobilized 30,000 peasant households, spread more than 500 millions bags (fungi bag) as a total and created about 600 millions of direct economic benefit. He has published more than 500 papers in academic journals; where more than 70 has been included or referenced by "SCI", and more than 20 works of him has been published and 16 patents for invention has been authorized by state. He has established Engineering Research Center for Edible and Medicinal Fungi of Ministry of Education, founded academic journal "Research on Fungus", set up specialty as edible fungi and undergraduate major as applied biological sciences (edible and medicinal fungi direction), built a relevant doctoral station and postdoctoral research station which have become provincial and ministerial-level key discipline and state key laboratory (breeding base). He took the lead in China to form relatively complete personnel training system of fungi science and edible fungi engineering for specialist, undergraduate, master, doctor, post-doctor; his team was awarded as national excellent teaching group and innovative team of Ministry of Education; the achievement was given the second prize of State-Level Teaching Achievement Award. He has presided over and led his team to complete technology and engineering research of fungi such as more than 50 national and provincial-level projects including international cooperation pivots and surface projects of Ministry of Science and Technology, Ministry of Agriculture, "973", "863", "948" and Natural Science Foundation of China. He has worked as a chairman to preside over 6 international and cross-strait academic conferences and made outstanding contributions to the cause of fungi for China.
