Hsuan-Cheng HUANG
Professor & Director, Institute of Biomedical Informatics, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei

Hsuan-Cheng Huang received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees in physics from National Taiwan University in 1992, 1994 and 1998, respectively. He was engaged in experimental high-energy physics research at Taiwan and at High Energy Accelerator Research Organization, Japan, and awarded NSC Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2003. Encouraged by the emerging of systems biology, Dr. Huang joined National Yang-Ming University in 2004 and is currently a Professor and the Director of the Institute of Biomedical Informatics, also affiliated with the Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology. In 2007, he received the NSC Wu Ta-You Memorial Award, an honor for excellent young investigators in Taiwan. Now he serves as an Editorial Board Member of Scientific Reports, an Associate Editor and Deputy Section Editor of BMC Systems Biology, and an Executive Board Member in Taiwan Society of Evolution and Computational Biology. His research interests include bioinformatics, computational and systems biology, and network biology. Currently, Dr. Huang endeavors his research efforts to computational analysis and modeling of biological networks, and applies them to unravel molecular mechanisms of cancer cell response, non-coding RNA regulation, as well as other biological processes.
