Dr. Haojie Huang is currently a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Urology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Research in Dr. Huang’s laboratory has been focusing on gene transcription regulation, epigenetics and prostate cancer. Specifically, he is interested in understanding the regulation and function of clinically relevant and biologically important transcription regulators in prostate cancer, which include transcription factors AR, FOXO1, and ERG, transcription coregulators CBP and p300, epigenetic modifiers EZH2 and LSD1, and upstream modulators PTEN and SPOP. He has published more than 100 papers with some of them in high profile journals including Science, Nature Medicine, Nature Cell Biology, Molecular Cell, PNAS, EMBO J, Cancer Research, and Clinical Cancer Research. The ultimate goal of his research is to shed new light on the etiology of prostate cancer and to identify novel targets for diagnostics, prognostics and therapeutics for this lethal disease. His research is supported by funds from the Mayo Clinic Foundation, NIH, DOD, and the Prostate cancer Foundation. He is currently a NIH study section standing member and serves on the Editorial Board of Cancer Research.
