Dr Paul Huang is a Team Leader in the Division of Cancer Biology at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR).

Originally from Singapore, he received his BSc in Biotechnology from Imperial College London in 2004. He trained in Dr Forest White’s laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he received a PhD in Biological Engineering in 2008. It was at MIT that Dr Huang was exposed to the power of applying engineering approaches to understand cancer biology and he developed novel combinatorial approaches for the treatment of glioma – a deadly form of brain tumour.

He joined the ICR in 2009 as an Institute Fellow and was awarded a Sir Henry Wellcome Fellowship by the Wellcome Trust (2009-12). He is currently a Career Development Faculty and leads the Protein Networks Team.

His research is focused on the use of systems biology and engineering tools to understand aberrant signalling networks in cancer with the goal of developing predictive network models for treating this disease.
