Place: Electrical Engineering (EE) 270; February 6, 2007, Tuesday, 4:30pm


In this talk I will give an overview of the type of contributions statistical geneticists make to the process of drug development, with specific examples from my own experience of the past year. I will describe some pharmacogenomics projects in cardiovascular disease and virology that I have been involved with.
