Academic Bio

Yufeng Huang, MD, Ph.D, is a research associate professor in the department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology at the University of Utah School of Medicine. As a basic and translational researcher, her research interests include roles of TGFß, PAI-1 and the renin, angiotensin and aldosterone system in promoting renal fibrosis in kidney disease.

Huang received her medical degree and completed her residency at the Jiangsu University in China. She continuously completed her fellowship in Nephrology and received her Ph.D degree at the Fudan University, Shanghai Medical College in China.

Research Statement

My research focuses on the pathophysiological role of receptor-mediated prorenin/renin's actions in renal fibrosis and the non-viral strategies for cell-specific delivery of pathway-interactors and molecular probles to diseased kidneys.
