Principal Investigators

Xihong Lin (PI) Xihong Lin is the Henry Pickering Walcott Professor of Biostatistics and Chair of the Department of Biostatistics, as well as the Coordinating Director of the Program in Quantitative Genomics at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Her group's major research interests lie in development and application of statistical and computational methods for anlaysis of high-dimensional genomic and 'omics data in population and clinical sciences, and for analysis of correlatd data, such as longitudinal, clustered and spatial data. The group is interested in statistical genetics and genomics, genetic and epigenetic epidemiology, genes and environment and medica l genomics. Current research projects include genome-wide association studies, next generation sequencing studies, gene-envir onment interactions, and genome-wide DNA methylation studies, pathway analysis and network analysis, proteomics.

Francesca Dominici (Co-PI) Francesca Dominici is a Professof of Biostatistics in the Department of Biostatistics and Senior Associate Dean for Research at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Her main research focuses on developing statistical methods for integrating and analyzing large and heterogeneous datasets to evaluate the health impacts of new discoveries and interventions. She is committed to: 1) advancing statistics by disseminating new methodology that better accounts for confounding and model misspecification in drawing inferences from large observational studies; and 2) applying the newly developed methodology to large and complex databases to address critical questions in public health and to impact policy.
