Statistical Genetics and Computational Biology

The Huang lab develops cutting-edge computational methods to tackle problems arising from the human genetics research. Despite that we often draw inspirations from our work on the genetics of inflammatory bowel diseases and psychiatric disorders, methods that we develop can be applied broadly to most human complex disorders and traits.

Psychiatric Genetics

The Huang lab is a member of the Stanley Center Global and leads the Stanley Center Asia Initiatives. Therefore, we are particularly interested in psychiatric genetics research problems in the Asia populations and across global populations.

Genetics of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

The Huang lab leads and contributes to inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) genetics studies through collaborations with the international IBD genetics consortium (IIBDGC), the Daly Lab, the Xavier Lab and as a member of the Center for the Study of IBD at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
