Hailiang Huang is an Assistant Professor at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Harvard Medical School. He is also an Institute Member at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
Huang’s research interest focuses on the genetics of human complex disorders. He has developed novel statistical and computational methods, performed state-of-art analyses, and led international recruitments and collaborations to elucidate the genetic mechanism underlying human complex disorders, especially autoimmune and psychiatric disorders. His lab has recently spearheaded initiatives to generate resources from diverse ancestral populations for genetic studies on schizophrenia, bipolar and inflammatory bowel diseases. Moreover, Huang has been at the forefront of creating statistical methods that incorporate multiple ancestries in genetic analyses, ensuring the global relevance of genetic findings and working towards reducing health disparities.
Huang received his B.S. from Nanjing University. He earned his M.A. in physics from Johns Hopkins University and his Ph.D. from the department of biomedical engineering at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, supervised by Joel Bader. He completed his postdoctoral training with Mark Daly at MGH and the Broad Institute.
