RESEARCH

Our research focuses on developing statistical methodologies to facilitate the analysis, integration and interpretation of high-throughput omics data. Many of our research projects center around microarrays and the next generation sequencing platforms, for understanding biological regulation in cancer and psychiatry disorders. We have developed softwares for DNA methylation, RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq data.

WTC WELLNESS PROGRAM GENETICS RESEARCH

Our lab is involved in the Stony Brook WTC Wellness Program research projects that evaluate the extent of mental and physical illness in hundreds of 9/11 responders. We develop statistical and bioinformatics models of integrative omics to understand genetic vulnerability and gene-environment interactions in the etiology of the post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), major depressive disorder (MDD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and prostate cancer risk among the 9/11 responders.
