Dr Justin Huang is an Institute Researcher in the Computational Biology group at MD Anderson Cancer Center's TRACTION Platform. His work focuses on bioinformatic infrastructure and computational analysis workflow development as well as computationally-aided discovery and translation of novel cancer targets. Dr Huang received his PhD in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology from the University of California, San Diego under the mentorship of Dr Trey Ideker where his thesis focused on the evaluation and application of biological networks to inform on biological hypotheses. While Justin is excited about bioinformatics and the possibilities computational biology can offer, he is also interested in science and mentorship in general.

We talk about: graduate school experience, early research career experience, network biology, trends in computational biology, his CA-to-TX transition, and more.
