Chuan-Hsiang Bear Huang, M.D., Ph.D
Department of Pathology Secondary Appointment in Cell Biology
Research TopicThe Huang lab is dedicated to uncovering the intricacies of signaling networks in cellular physiology and disease processes. With a strong focus on the RTK/Ras/ERK/PI3K signaling network and its role in cell growth and migration, the Huang Lab has developed cutting-edge experimental and computational tools to study these complex systems. Their ultimate goal is to leverage these insights for cancer treatment. Before embarking on his research career, Dr. Huang earned his M.D. from National Taiwan University and completed a two-year residency in internal medicine. He then pursued his Ph.D. in Immunology at Johns Hopkins University, where he published a milestone paper on the structure of a PI3K protein, a key driver of cancer. Dr. Huang has received several awards, including a Silver Medal at the International Mathematical Olympiad, the Julian Baumert Award, the Damon Runyon Fellowship, and the NCI K22 Transition Career Development Award.
