Prof. Juan has developed a number of novel methods to advance systems-biology research and applied such approach for drug discovery and elucidating molecular mechanism of drug responses in cancer cells. She has published more than 100 journal papers and is now the editor of several journals including Scientific Reports (Nature Publishing Group). To promote systems biology field, she has organized several international systems biology symposiums. She is one of the founders of Center for Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (NTU), and currently the Council Member of three societies, the Taiwan Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Society, Taiwan Proteomics Society, and Taiwan Society of Evolution and Computational Biology and Supervisor of Taiwan Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Since Dr Juan made significant contributions through systems biology approach to development of methodology and cancer therapy; she received the awards "Taiwan's Ten Outstanding Young Persons", FY2011 JSPS Invitation Fellowship Program for Research in Japan, K T Li Breakthrough Award by Institute of Information and Computing Machinery, National Science Council (NSC)/Ministration of Science and Technology (MOST) Award for Special Talents of the Colleges and USA Emerging Information and Technology Association (EITA) Service Award. Additionally, she has been invited to give more than 150 talks worldwide and leads her team members to obtain more than 70 research awards.
Hsuan-Cheng Huang received his BA, MA, and PhD degrees in physics from National Taiwan University in 1992, 1994 and 1998, respectively. He was engaged in experimental high-energy physics research at Taiwan and at High Energy Accelerator Research Organization, Japan, and awarded NSC Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2003. Encouraged by the emerging of systems biology, Dr Huang joined National Yang-Ming University in 2004 and is currently a Professor and the Director of the Institute of Biomedical Informatics, also affiliated with the Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology. In 2007, he received the NSC Wu Ta-You Memorial Award, an honor for excellent young investigators in Taiwan. Now he serves as an Editorial Board Member of Scientific Reports, an Associate Editor and Deputy Section Editor of BMC Systems Biology, and an Executive Board Member in Taiwan Society of Evolution and Computational Biology. His research interests include bioinformatics, computational and systems biology, and network biology. Currently, Dr Huang endeavors his research efforts to computational analysis and modeling of biological networks, and applies them to unravel molecular mechanisms of cancer cell response, non-coding RNA regulation, as well as other biological processes.
