Research in Dr. Li's laboratory explores the mechanism involved in autoantibody-induced epidermal cell detachment (acantholysis).  Current studies are listed below:

  • Role of proteases in acantholysis
  • Role of apoptosis in acantholysis
  • Role of P53 transcription factor in acantholysis
  • Role of carbohydrate moieties on desmogleins on autoantibody-induced acantholysis


Dr. Li's research is NIH-funded.
