Professor Huang is Executive Director (Acting) of Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI) and Director of the Centre for Translational Neuroscience (CTN) in the University of Wollongong, Australia. He was awarded a Doctoral Degree in Medicine from China in 1983, a PhD in Neuroscience from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) Australia in 1993, and a Doctor of Science from the University of Wollongong (UoW) Australia in 2011. He has published about 300 publications including 3 books, 9 book chapters, 131 international peer-reviewed articles, 24 letters to editors and 134 conference proceedings. His work has been cited over 3,000 times in the literature. He has been a member of the NHMRC-GRP and ARC-ERA panels and is an ARC Australian Reader. His expertise is in studying: (1) the mechanisms of obesity and diabetes induced by either antipsychotics or a high-energy diet; (2) the therapeutic mechanisms of treating schizophrenia and validation of new compounds using in vitro, in vivo and molecular imaging techniques; and (3) the application of triterpene molecules extracted from herbal medicines to improve glucose and lipid metabolism, anti-inflammation and cognitive function.
