The investigations were launched due to an academic misconduct report from Ho Wen-Zhe, who suspected academic misconduct in 2 Nature Medicine papers (CFLAR and TMBIM1 papers) published by Li Hongliang’s team.

Li Hongliang is the distinguished professor of “Cheung Kong Scholar Award” of Wuhan University. His team has been focusing on liver metabolic diseases for more than 10 years. Since 2016, Li Hongliang’s team has published 4 papers on Nature Medicine in the field of liver diseases.

Ho Wen-Zhe holds full professorship in both Wuhan University and Temple University. He lost his position as director of the Center for Animal Experiment of Wuhan University when competing with Li Hongliang and other candidates in 2015.

On April 2017, a report from Ho Wen-Zhe alleged that the CFLAR and TIMBIM1 papers of Li Hongliang’s team had academic misconduct. The Academic Committee of Wuhan University (hereafter referred to as “the Committee”) immediately launched an academic investigation according to the Detailed Rules of Wuhan University for Investigation and Treatment of Academic Misconduct (hereafter referred to as “the Rules”).
