Lianping Ti, PhD, is a Research Scientist with the Epidemiology and Population Health program at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS and Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of British Columbia.

Her research largely focuses on understanding the intersections between addictions, infectious diseases, and the delivery and efficacy of healthcare systems. She currently leads a prospective cohort study of patients who have successfully cleared hepatitis C (HCV) using direct-acting antiviral therapy to primarily investigate HCV re-infection.

She also has international research experience working on a serial cross-sectional mixed-methods study to explore experiences with access to health and harm reduction services among people who inject drugs in Bangkok, Thailand. Lianping has received several national and international awards, including the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar Award and CIHR Institute of Health Services and Policy Research Rising Star Award.
