Welcome to The Huang Laboratory!

Our lab is interested in understanding the structure, dynamics, and functions of the signaling network involving receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) and their downstream effectors such Ras, PI3K and MAPK/ERK pathways. We use an interdisciplinary approach including fluorescent live cell imaging, genetics, synthetic biology, optogenetics, and mathematical modeling to uncover the mechanisms and properties of the network in cell biology, as well as in vivo models and patient samples to investigate the implications in cancer treatment.
