Hybrid Event - Genetic Nosology: Statistical methods for (re)defining phenotypes from the ground up
Dr. Noah Zaitlen, Associate Professor at the University of California Los Angeles in the Departments of Computational Medicine and Neurology will be presenting his research at the Center for Genetic Epidemiology on January 25, 2023.
Dr. Zaitlen is the co-Director of the UCLA Clinical Neurogenomics Research Center. He develops statistical and computational tools to understand the genetic basis of complex phenotypes from genetic and functional genomic data with a special focus on cancer, variation in cancer drug/treatment response, and cancer gene-environment interactions in admixed populations. Dr. Zaitlen has collaborative efforts that span domestic and international academic institutions and leverages data from numerous studies for genomic discoveries in medicine and epidemiology. His lab has both dry and wet lab expertise and students and post-docs from diverse fields including: applied math/computer science, biostatistics/statistics, bioinformatics, evolutionary biology, medicine, and genetics/genomics.
