Dr.Huang’s research focuses on developmental systems. He is developing novel techniques to understand embryogenesis, accelerate the development of patient-specific organs for transplantation, and generate innovative ideas that will lead to future improvements in diagnostics and care. He has two major areas: 1. Using intravital imaging to better understand the complexity of different organs during the process of development from embryos to adults; 2. Creating new human-mouse chimeras to investigate the specific integration processes that occur during growth and aging, with a focus on understanding how the niche affects the specific cells during embryogenesis. The chimeras being developed may have an application as scaffolds for growing transplantable organs in the future, thereby presenting a potential solution for the shortage of human organs for transplantation.
