Howard C. Hang is an American chemist and Richard E. Salomon Family Associate Professor at the Rockefeller University in New York City. He is also the head of the Laboratory of Chemical Biology and Microbial Pathogenesis at the university. He won the Eli Lilly Award in Biological Chemistry in 2017.[1]

He earned a BS in Chemistry from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 1998, and a PhD in chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley in 2003. He was a postdoctoral researcher at Harvard Medical School.[2] He set up his own lab at the Rockefeller University in 2007.[3]

His work involves developing chemical methods to understand mechanisms of how immune cells and invading microbes interact, and to develop new methods to combat infections.[1]
