Caroline Huang, PhD

Caroline is a first-year postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Bioethics. She completed an SB in Brain and Cognitive Science at MIT, followed by a DPhil (PhD) in Public Health at the University of Oxford. At MIT, she researched the localization of language in the Gabrieli Lab, interned for Senator Edward Kennedy, and founded the campus chapter of Camp Kesem, a nonprofit organization helping children through and beyond a parent's cancer. At Oxford, her dissertation examined ethical issues surrounding access to care for BRCA (breast cancer susceptibility genes 1 and 2) mutations, a topic inspired by Camp Kesem families. She also developed a debating course module for the MSc in Global Health Science and published on topics including direct-to-consumer genetic testing, nudge behavior, free will, and healthcare communication. At the NIH, she is exploring the ethics of decision making for complex conditions such as chronic pain, hereditary cancer, and concussions.
