       Overview 
       Overview
      Dr. Alison Huang is a general internist and women’s health researcher at the University of California San Francisco who is dedicated to advancing scientific understanding and improving clinical management of menopause- and aging-related health conditions in women. Her research is currently focused on two widely prevalent but relatively understudied manifestations of menopause and aging: 1) genitourinary dysfunction, including conditions such as urinary incontinence, urogenital atrophy, and sexual dysfunction; and 2) menopausal symptoms, including vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes and nightsweats. Her long-term goal is to lead a multidisciplinary team of researchers in geriatrics, urogynecology, and general medicine in promoting understanding of the effect of aging on health and functioning in women and developing more effective strategies to prevent and treat health conditions that lie at the interface of geriatrics and women’s health.
