ER-Associated Degradation (ERAD) in Health and Disease

Dr. Ling Qi
Professor, Molecular & Integrative Physiology
Professor, Internal Medicine, Division of Metabolism,
Endocrinology & Diabetes
University of Michigan
Host: Dr. Shaodong Guo

Dr. Qi’s laboratory aims to explore the physiological role of endoplasmic reticulum (ER)
homeostasis (with a special focus on ER protein degradation) and inflammation in the context
of human diseases including obesity and diabetes. They use genetic, immunological, molecular
and cellular approaches to dissect the molecular processes of protein folding quality control
and to produce new insights into disease pathogenesis. They have made significant
contribution in the fields of physiological ER homeostasis and inflammation in health and
disease while maintaining a high standard of excellence at the levels of both individual scientist
and whole laboratory. In the last 12 years, they have published over 50 papers, including
several seminal discoveries published in top journals such as Nat Cell Biol, Nat Immunol, Cell
Metab, J Clin Invest, Dev Cell, PNAS, EMBO J, Cell Reports, Diabetes and J Biol Chem. They
have discovered the importance of ERAD in health and disease.
