The Huang laboratory is developing and applying high-throughput technologies to functional genomics and cancer research. These technologies allow us to systemically study the functions of genes in the human genome and their roles in tumor development. The laboratory is using these technologies to study tumor metastasis, identify novel chemotherapy drug targets, and improve the efficacy of cancer treatment.
The microscope in the image belonged to William E. Horner, M.D., a collaborator with Caspar Wistar, M.D., in the early 1800s.
Dr. Horner, a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania, was a pioneer of the use of microscopes in anatomical and medical research. He authored Special Anatomy and Histology, a seminal text on the subject.
