Develop and use computational methods to study the genetics of complex disorders.

The Huang Lab develops and applies cutting-edge statistical genetics and computational techniques to understand the genetic architecture of human complex disorders, especially autoimmune and psychiatric disorders. We are especially interested in novel methods to leverage cross-ancestry genomics data for insights into the disease pathogenesis. Huang Lab is a member of the Analytic and Translational Genetics Unit at the Massachusetts General Hospital, the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute, and Harvard Medical School. Huang lab works closely with the International Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Consortium (IIBDGC) and the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium (PGC).

Priority Projects

  1. Multi-ancestry IBD genetics study
  2. A novel fine-mapping method leveraging genetics data across multiple ancestries
  3. Genetic regulation in diverse ancestral populations
  4. Schizophrenia genetics in East Asia and European ancestries
