HUANG Yu received his PhD from University of Cambridge. He is the Professor of Biomedical Sciences and the founding Director of Heart and Vascular Institute, CUHK. He was the past President of Asian Society for Vascular Biology and currently the Vice-President for both Chinese Society for Vascular Medicine and Chinese Section of International Society for Heart Research. He is the elected Fellow of the International Society for Heart Research (2019).
Huang Yu serves as the Grant Review Panel Member for Hong Kong Research Grants Council, Hong Kong’s Health and Medical Research Fund and Natural Science Foundation of China. He has served (past and present) as the editor, guest editor, associate editor, and editorial board member for 17 SCI-indexed journals including British Journal of Pharmacology (editor) and Circulation Research (associate editor).
Huang’s team aims to elucidate cellular and molecular events in initiation of endothelial dysfunction in hypertension, atherosclerosis, obesity and diabetes, to uncover novel biomarkers for vascular pathogenesis, and to develop venues to reverse vascular dysfunction in animal models of cardio-metabolic disorders. The present study aims to identify secretary proteins and metabolites that mediate functional communication between organs during physical exercise and develop them into useful diagnostic biomarkers and therapeutic targets against cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. He has co-authored 435 publications in SCI-indexed journals including Nature, Science, European Heart Journal, Cell Metabolism, Circulation Research, PNAS, Diabetes with over 24900 Google scholar citations (h-index of 81). He received Croucher Senior Research Fellowship in 2014; Higher Education Outstanding Scientific Research Output Award (first-class award in 2019, second-class award in 2017), Ministry of Education; The State Natural Science Award (second-class award, 2015). He was the recipient of The Asian Lecture on Vascular Biology (2018), The Robert F. Furchgott Lecture (2013), and The Office of Life Sciences Distinguished Lecture, National University of Singapore (2007).
