Description of CVI Expertise

CVI Program Unit(s):
Biotechnology / Nanomedicine / Imaging

CVI Research Description:
I am a Professor of Biostatistics. My research interest is on developing new statistical and computational methods for analysis of genetic, genomic and other high-throughput data. These methods can be very useful for many genomic studies of cardiovascular diseases.
