Kerui Huang, Ph.D.
I earned my B.S. in Molecular Genetics from the University of Toronto, where I worked with Dr. Julie Brill on the phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) regulation on spermatogenesis using Drosophila. I earned my Ph.D. from Dr. Hua Bai's lab at Iowa State University, where I focused on hepatocyte-like cells (oenocytes) in fruit flies, and their regulatory roles on cardiac health during oxidative stress and aging. In Perrimon's lab, I am specifically interested in how oenocytes regulate whole-body metabolism under normal or stressed conditions.
