Associate Professor of Biostatistics
Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School
Dr. Lange’s current research interests fall into the broad areas of statistical genetics and generalized linear models. Recent topics in statistical genetics include family-based association tests, meta-analysis of linkage studies, GEE-methods in linkage analysis and marker-assisted selection.
In the area of family-based association tests (FBATs), he has focused on the development of power calculations for family-based association studies, multivariate extensions of the FBAT statistic, FBATs for time-to-onset data and approaches to handle the multiple testing problem in family-based studies.
Dr. Lange is also involved in collaborative research in asthma genetics and COPD genetics.
