Stress-Induced Pathway of Cell-Cell Adhesion Disruption in Pemphigus Pathogenesis


Outcomes: Crosstalk between cell adhesive junctions in pemphigus

Led by Dr. Ruiguo Yang, this project aims to determine the role mechanical stress plays in regulating the pathogenesis of pemphigus, an autoimmune skin disease. With advanced single cell pair interrogation and stimulation techniques, the study will delineate the regulatory mechanisms in adhesive junctions during the cell-cell dissociation processes.
