Introduce: To develop clinically useful models that predict risks for adverse drug reactions and non-response prior to administration of chemotherapy, Dr. Huang’ Lab research focuses on translational pharmacogenomic research with particular interest in the pharmacogenomics of anticancer agents by systematically evaluating the human genomes and their relationships to drug response and toxicity. They utilize cell lines, and clinical samples to discover and functional characterize genetic variations, gene and microRNA (miRNA) expression for their role in chemotherapeutic sensitivity.
