|Stem Cell Awareness Day - Li Lab|
|Published Monday, October 8, 2012 12:01 am|
In late 2011, Dr. Yangping Li joined The Parkinsonís Institute to lead a new lab which further extends the Stem Cell work of her colleagues Dr. Schuele and Dr. Nichols. Her research interests are centered on the understanding of the role of mutant LRRK2 in Parkinsonís disease using transgenic models at the organism levels.
Dr. Li is focused on dissecting the early molecular and cellular events in LRRK2 Parkinsonism. As a geneticist, cellular biologist and pathologist, Dr. Li is passionate about using her expertise to unravel the molecular causes of Parkinsonís disease in collaboration with her colleagues at TPI.

Joining Dr. Li in her Lab is Fengeng Sun, PhD.
