Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Yunyun Zhou has a multi-disciplinary background in computer science, bioinformatics, biostatistics, and epidemiology. She is skilled in collaborative work with both basic scientists and clinical researchers, and also translates biomedical problems into programming language. She is interested in identifying genetic biomarkers for target therapy from next generation sequencing data processing, genomics data integration, molecular regulation mechanism and pathway analysis from a system biology perspective for complex diseases such as cancer, and cardiovascular disease.  She is also interested in developing machine learning algorithms for disease predictive models and reproducible tools such as database and software for functional analysis in biomedical research.
