About the Speaker(s)

Alex Huang
Alex Y.C. Huang, MD, PhD Professor, Department of Pediatrics, School of Medicine

Dr. Huang received a B.S. in chemistry and an M.S. in biochemistry and molecular biology from the University of Chicago. He then entered the medical scientist training program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he completed his Ph.D. thesis in the laboratory of Drew M. Pardoll, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Huang’s Ph.D. thesis included studying the process of in vivo tumor-antigen cross-presentation by bone marrow-derived professional antigen-presenting cells and identifying the dominant MHC class-I restricted tumor rejection antigen, AH-1, in a murine colon tumor model.

After completing a pediatric residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Huang entered the combined pediatric hematology/oncology clinical fellowship training program at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the National Cancer Institute. While a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Ronald N. Germain in the Laboratory of Immunology at NIAID, Dr. Huang received the Cancer Research Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship Award and was among the first to develop a new technique of intravital 2-photon laser scanning microscopy in studying immune cell migration and interaction in secondary lymphoid organs and the gastrointestinal tract in vivo.
