The Team

Jian Huang, MD, PhD

Associate Professor
Senior Scientist for Stem Cell Biology and Genetic Engineering

I'm passionate about investigating hematopoietic stem cells, the stem cells that develop into the various blood cell types, and the molecular pathways that control them. A stronger understanding of how these cells communicate and grow into their adult cell types will better allow us to use them in therapies. 

I trained in medicine at Peking University Health Science Center of China, started my research career at State University of New York Downstate Medical Center as a PhD student, and completed my postdoc training at University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

As a faculty member at Philadelphia's Temple University, I started my independent laboratory with a K99/R00 career award in 2013 before joining the Coriell Institute for Medical Research in 2020.
