Mr. Hao Li received his M.S. degree from the Institute of Medicinal Biotechnology of the Chinese Academy of Medical Science in 2005. He joined the Hao Li Graduate Program in Microbiology at UAB in 2008 and has carried out his graduate study in Dr. John Mountz laboratory at UAB since 2008. Mr. Li initially studied the role of IL-23 in the regulation of autoimmune disease in the BXD2 mouse model of systemic autoimmunity. These mice develop spontaneous germinal centers (GCs) in the spleen that are highly dependent of interleukin (IL)-17. Mr. Li made the novel and unexpected finding that IL-23 was necessary to maintain the integrity of marginal zone barrier that prevents follicular entry of apoptotic self-antigens in BXD2 mice. This initial work led to his present findings of a novel mechanism of autoimmunity in which “leaks” in the marginal zone barrier enable entry of apoptotic Ags into the follicle Mr. Li currently studies the molecular mechanisms regulating the interactions of marginal zone macrophages and marginal zone B cells in maintaining the tolerogenic function of these cells to apoptotic self-antigens.Read more...
