Ms Angela Huang
Angela Huang is a Research Assistant in the Atherothrombosis and Vascular Biology laboratory at the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute. Angela is involved in research focused on the testing of plaque-stabilising drugs, and projects investigating the contribution of the immune system to identify novel anti-inflammatory approaches that prevent plaque rupture and heart attacks. Currently, she is also working on projects examining the underlying mechanisms of vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia.
Angela graduated from the University of Melbourne Department of Immunology and completed a First-Class Honours degree with the Department of Paediatrics at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. As part of The New Vaccines Group, Angela investigated the cellular basis of long-term immunity following HPV vaccination, with a particular emphasis on memory B-cells to assess vaccine efficacy following reduced dose vaccinations.
