Welcome to the Li Lab at the University of Michigan Medical School!

The main focus of our research is to identify the signaling mechanisms that regulate hematopoietic stem cell functions, under normal and diseased conditions. Some areas of research interests include:

1. ER stress signaling and protein quality control in HSCs
2. Metabolic reprogramming in leukemic stem cells. 
3. Ras signaling in HSC dysregulation
4. Fatty acid metabolism in HSCs
5. The role of CDX2 in leukemogenesis
