Biography

Dr. Sun’s research has focused on the analysis of phenotypes and genetic traits in both the Framingham Heart Study and The Long Life Family Study. She has played an active role in the analysis of phenotype traits and their genetic basis. She contributed to quality assessment and quality control of the phenotypic and genetic data, and conduct statistical analyses. Sun is a statistician on the Framingham Heart Study. She also provides statistical support for the Amyloidosis Center research group in the study of systemic amyloidoses. She collaborates on the harmonization of phenotypes from different studies.
