Personal profile

After completing his subspecialty training at the National Institutes of Health in 1980, Dr. Huston joined the faculty at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. While at Baylor, he became a full Professor of Medicine and Immunology, and held numerous leadership positions including the Cullen Chair of Immunology, the chief of the Immunology, Allergy, and Rheumatology Section, and director of the Immunology, Allergy, and Rheumatology Service at Houston Methodist Hospital. Dr. Huston also directed several training programs including the Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Training Program, the Clinical and Laboratory Immunology Fellowship Training Program, the Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program, the Translational Biology and Molecular Medicine Training Program in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and the Howard Hughes Medical Research Institute Grad into Med Program. He assumed his current positions at the Texas A&M Health Science Center in 2008. Dr. Huston serves on the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Allergy and Immunology, is a member of the American Association of Physicians, and consistently recognized as among the Best Doctors in America.

Research interests

Dr. Huston’s research centers on the study of various mechanisms of allergic inflammation, utilizing basic science, pre-clinical, and clinical studies. He has been the principal investigator on several NIH grants, including an 11-year R01 from the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases that defined the functional structure of Interleukin-5. Dr. Huston’s current studies investigate the role of human thymic stromal lymphopoietin in the development and maintenance of the Th2 immune response that dominates the allergic phenotype. Additional studies investigate the mechanisms of immune regulation in autoimmune and immune deficiency disorders.
