Zi-Ming (Macy) Huang

PhD Student, QUT


Macy is a PhD student in the Bone and Tumour Bioengineering group, led by Dr Nathalie Bock, based at the Translational Research Institute at QUT. Macy’s PhD is part of the MPQC Human ECM program, with a focus on human bone ECM in the context of bone metastasis. Specifically, Macy is using biomaterials and tissue engineering technologies to recreate 3D in vitro models of the metastatic microenvironment of advanced breast cancer in bone, to understand the complex cross-talk between osteoblasts, osteoclasts and breast cancer cells, and as platforms for drug testing purposes.
