A graduate of the Duke University School of Medicine, Dr. Erich Huang has spent nearly two decades with Duke University and Duke Medicine. After receiving his MD and PhD in genetics from Duke University, Dr. Huang completed a residency in general surgery at Duke University Medical Center. His clinical interests include computational and systems biology, solid-tumor gene-expression analysis, breast cancer, and oncogenic pathway analysis. He is currently leading projects on applied machine learning, user interfaces, visualization of surgical outcomes and a chronic kidney disease “early warning” system.

As the first faculty member recruited to the Duke University School of Medicine Department of Biostatistics & Bioinformatics, Dr. Huang is leading the development of a data science culture for biomedical research at Duke. He is the principal investigator of an NIH-funded project under the Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) RFAs and the faculty lead for informatics on the Verily-funded Baseline Study.
