Shuang Huang, Ph.D., joined the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology as a Professor and Cancer Preeminent faculty on October 1, 2015. Dr. Huang received his Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Baylor College of Medicine and comes to the University of Florida from Georgia Regents University.
Dr. Huang’s research interests include elucidating molecular mechanisms regulating cancer metastasis and developing precision medicine therapeutic strategies against advanced cancer.
Work in Dr. Huang’s laboratory includes the implication of a double negative feedback loop of SHOX2 and miR-375 as a key regulator of EMT process in breast cancer and defining the molecular mechanisms underlying this loop in regulating EMT. Another ongoing project is to develop a precision medicine strategy against advanced ovarian cancer based on chromosomal and gene expression/activation status in tumor cells.
Welcome Dr. Huang!
