As an undergraduate, Huân studied and published three papers describing the diversity of critters (desmid, diatom, dinoflagellate, chrysophyte) living in floating bog mats.

Toxoplasma is a common parasite of human and every warm-blooded animal. The brain parasite infects one in three humans on Earth. See 'Brain Parasite Toxoplasma’ page.
Toxoplasma modulates brain gene networks associated with brain diseases. This figure summarizes novel links reported in Scientific Reports by Huân and collaborators. Toxoplasma Modulates Signature Pathways of Human Epilepsy, Neurodegeneration and Cancer. See ‘BrainMicro LLC’ page.
We determined the crystallographic structures of twelve Toxoplasma enzymes that are candidate drug targets. The enzymes function in metabolic pathways vital for parasite survival—we kill the enzymes, we kill Toxoplasma. See ‘Drug Discovery’ page.
