Huyen completed her Master's degree in Biotechnology at the Technical University of Berlin in 2022. Her master's thesis "Molecular mechanisms and regulatory effects of PML on LPS-induced inflammatory responses of vascular endothelial cells" elucidated that promyelocytic leukaemia (PML) has a positive effect on regulating NF-κB expression in Toll-like-receptor-4 (TLR4) signalling pathway during sepsis. However, there is evidence of a NF-κB-independent signal transduction leading to a pro-inflammatory response in human endothelial cells. Furthermore, PML is located between upstream of CASP1 causing inflammatory response in NLR signalling pathway via NOS.

She worked as a student assistant at the Charité University Hospital, in Berlin, for many years working in various projects, including a recent project aimed to determine the effect of previous exposure to cold viruses on the severity of SARS-CoV-2 symptoms based on cross-reactive immunity during the pandemic and endemic.

Huyen moved to Australia in 2023 and has now joined the Stem Cell and Organoid Facility to support the team in the reprogramming and maintenance of iPSCs, and in the development of stem cell-derived organoid technologies for advanced therapeutics.

In her spare time, she enjoys playing volleyball and has a penchant for cooking and baking.
