Welcome to the Huang lab!

We are a new research group interested in understanding molecular mechanisms of protein complexes, in particular large protein assemblies, through studying their structures, dynamics and functions. We use advanced Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) techniques in combination with other structural biology tools, such as cryo-Electron Microscopy and Mass Spectrometry, as well as other biophysical and biochemical techniques to determine the 3D structures of the proteins, study protein-protein interactions, characterize their functional dynamics, and provide information and strategies to design therapeutics for intervening their functions.

If you are passionate about learning how proteins work and studying their structures, dynamics and functions, join us! We are recruiting lab members of all levels, see here.
