Chuan-Hsiang Huang, M.D., Ph.D.

Headshot of Chuan-Hsiang Huang
  • Associate Professor of Pathology


Chuan-Hsiang Bear Huang received his M.D. from National Taiwan University and completed two years of residency in internal medicine before obtaining his Ph.D. from the Graduate Program in Immunology at Johns Hopkins University, where he solved the structure of a PI3K protein that is one of the most important cancer drivers. His current research is focused on the dynamics, structure, and function of the signaling network involving RTK, Ras, PI3K, and ERK in cellular processes and cancer. Dr. Huang has numerous publications, including papers in Science, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Communications, and Cell. He has received many awards, including a Silver Medal at the International Mathematical Olympiad, the Mette Strand Award, the Julian Baumert Award, and the Damon Runyon Fellowship. more
