Sidong Huang

Assistant Professor, McGill University. Montreal, Canada.

Dr. Huang is a biochemist working on McGill campus whose research method uses functional genomic tools to study cancer-related pathways and to guide cancer therapies. His work includes high impact discoveries using shRNA screens to study drug resistance in cancer. He is a co-investigator on projects that aim to identify the pathways through which mutations in SMARCA4 lead to development of small cell carcinoma of the ovary at the molecular level with the ultimate goal of discovering druggable targets that can be used to improve treatment of the disease.
