Research Interests: 
Xin Li is studying the potential dual roles of Adhesion G protein-coupled receptors (Adhesion GPCR) in early zebrafish development. Adhesion GPCRs are chimeras of seven-transmembrane receptors and adhesion molecules, and therefore they possess the potential to mediate signaling and cellular adhesion. Even though the functions of most Adhesion-GPCRs during embryogenesis remain uncharacterized, literature and my preliminary data suggest that at least half of Adhesion GPCRs are expressed during early zebrafish development. My goal in this study is to identify Adhesion GPCR genes expressed during early zebrafish development and to uncover their functions in the process
