Hsiao-Chun Huang
Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology, National Taiwan University
Dr. Hsiao-Chun Huang received her Ph.D. degree in Systems Biology
from Harvard Medical School in 2010. After graduation, she worked as
a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences,
Academia Sinica. She joined the Institute of Molecular and Cellular
Biology at National Taiwan University, where she is currently an
assistant professor since August 2012. She is interested in using
multidisciplinary approaches encompassing quantitative single-cell
imaging, molecular biology, computational modeling and synthetic
approaches to understand how pathway architectures give rise to
interesting cellular behaviors, including cell-cell variability.

Takashi Ito
Department of Biophysics and Biochemistry,
Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo
Dr. Itoh received his M.D. (1984) and Ph.D. (1990) from Kyushu
University, Japan. After his postdoctoral training at UC Berkeley, he
joined the Human Genome Center at the University of Tokyo as
Assistant Professor in 1992. He was promoted to Professor of the Cancer
Research Institute at Kanazawa University in 1999. He then moved to
the Department of Computational Biology (2003) and the Department
of Biophysics and Biochemistry (2009) at the University of Tokyo.
Dr. Itoh performed a first comprehensive two-hybrid analysis of the yeast proteome as a pioneer of
interactome analysis. He also performed a large-scale full-length cDNA analysis to reveal unexpected
complexity of the yeast transcriptome. He has been also interested in epigenomics to develop unique
methods for imprinted gene hunting, allelic methylation analysis, one-hybrid screening for methylated
DNA-binding proteins, and highly sensitive whole-genome bisulfite sequencing. Professor Itoh has
published many important Papers on epigenetics and other biological phenomenon. He is a wet-lab
researcher with an outstanding appreciation of the role computation can play in biology, and
experience advising graduate students in a multi-disciplinary department. In short, a perfect speaker
to foster new collaborations between experimental and computational scientists.
