Department of Systems Biology Seminar
Billy Li, PhD, associate professor of genetics at Standord University, will deliver a talk as part of the DSB Seminar Series.
The Li Lab is primarily interested in RNA editing mediated by ADAR enzymes. Dr. Li and collaborators co-discovered that the major function of RNA editing is to label endogenous dsRNAs as "self" to avoid being recognized as "non-self" by MDA5, a host innate immune dsRNA sensor, leading them to pursue therapeutic applications in cancer, autoimmune diseases, and viral infection. The other major direction of the lab is to develop technologies to harness endogenous ADAR enzymes for site-specific transcriptome engineering.
