Biosketch:

Dr. Huang received his B.S. from National Taiwan Universityand his Ph.D. in biochemistry from University of California, Davis in 1970 where he studied fatty acid metabolism with Paul K. Stumpf. He did postdoctoral research on regulation of glycogen metabolism by protein phosphorylation with Enrico Cabib at the NIDDK. In 1973 he moved to NICHD as a Senior Staff Fellow and became Chief of the Section on Metabolic Regulation in 1984. Dr. Huang received numerous Performance Awards including the NIH Director’s award in 1988 for his work on the roles of protein kinase C isoforms in cellular regulation. His laboratory is studying the role of protein kinase C and its target in learning and memory using genetically altered mutant mice. He has identified a protein kinase C-specific substrate, neurogranin, in the enhancement of synaptic plasticity and cognitive function.
