Rita D. Ross


HER previous positions in statistical and population genetics were at the Institute of Marine Biology in Vladivostok, Russia, North Carolina State University’s Statistics Department and at GlaxoSmithKline Inc. His scientific interests are in the areas of statistical, population genetics and genetic epidemiology with applications to genetics of human diseases and pharmacogenetics. His research focus is on: Models for predicting the balance between spurious and real findings among top hits of large scale genetic studies. Development of methods that are applicable for analysis of multidimensional genomic data. Approaches for detection of local genetic associations with health-related outcomes.
