Dr Xu Huang

Dr Xu Huang was appointed in July 2014 as new lecturer/group leader. He received funding from the Howat Foundation to set up his research group, titled as the Haemato-oncology/Systems Medicine laboratory within the Paul O’Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre, University of Glasgow. The lab has recently identified and validated few potential candidates as therapeutic treatment targets in Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. The future research will focus on epigenetic regulation in leukaemia cancer stem cells, and continue to identify novel pathways and targets in leukaemia by using combinations of different systems biology approaches and by exploring novel polyomics methods in the study of cancer stem cells. Currently Huang’s laboratory is comprised of one post-doctoral research assistant, Dr. Niamh Mannion, who is also supported by the Howat Foundation, and one PhD student and two more PhD students are expected to join Huang’s group later this year.
