Biographical Sketch

Dr. Yuebing Li has served as a staff neurologist in the Neuromuscular Center at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation since 2012.

Dr. Li completed his neurology residency at University of Cincinnati in 2002, where he was elected chief resident. This was followed by a one-year fellowship in clinical neurophysiology that was also at the University of Cincinnati. He is board certified in Neurology and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (EMG).

Dr. Li practiced at Lehigh Valley Physician Group-Lehigh Neurology as a neuromuscular specialist for nine years before joining Cleveland Clinic.

Dr. Li has published numerous articles on neuromuscular medicine and neurology, and received many teaching awards including the award for Neurology Teacher of the Year at Cleveland Clinic in 2014. He has also been voted as best doctors by Best Doctors of America since 2007.

Although he has a large practice that includes patients with various neuromuscular disorders, Dr. Li has a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of myasthenia gravis. He serves as a member of the Medical and Scientific Advisory Board for the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America organization.

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. The Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, the Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 7/15/2014, Dr. Li has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by the Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers’ discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.
