Research interests


Dr. Huang' interest is to investigate the genome instability of lung epithelial cells upon the exposure of cigarettes smoking. He will apply the single-cell genome sequence to characterize the mutational spectrum of the normal cell exposed to smoking. This study will reveal insightful information for the carcinogenic and ageing-driver signature of cigarettes smoking.
