Principal Investigator: Wei Chen, Ph.D.

I am a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (primary), Biostatistics (secondary), and Human Genetics (secondary) at the Unviersity of Pittsburgh.

Our lab is interested in the development of statistical and computational methods for high-throughput genetic/genomic data (e.g. next-generation sequencing, methylation, RNA-seq data) and the genetic study of complex diseases, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), childhood asthma, and chronic obstructive pulumonary disease (COPD). Other research includes ancestry inference on admixed population, mediation analysis, and statistical computing. Our lab is currently supported by the University of Pittsburgh, National Eye Institute (NEI), and National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).

Postdoc positions are available here. Positions for graduate student research assistant and student worker are also available. Rotation students are also welcome. Please contact wei chen at wei.chen@chp.edu for more information.
