Dr. Li’s research interests include exploring molecular mechanisms and pathogenesis in autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes and lupus. His research primarily focuses on three areas:

  • Identification and characterization of a novel pancreatic cell-specific autoantigen Pdx-1
  • Differentiation of the induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells from NOD mice or human with type 1 diabetes into insulin-producing cells, using protein transduction technology
  • Identification and characterization of a novel candidate gene for lupus
