Biography

Josée Dupuis, Ph.D, is a Professor and Interim Chair of Biostatistics at Boston University School of Public Health. She previously held a faculty position at Northwestern University and more recently she was a senior statistical geneticist at Genome Therapeutics Corporation, a small biotech company. She has extensive experience in the development and application of methods for mapping complex traits. Her methodological work has included genome-wide significance level, mapping of quantitative traits in experimental organisms and robust quantitative trait linkage and association analysis methods in extended pedigrees. Her recent work involves the development of rare variant association tests in families, and approaches to detect gene x gene and gene x environment interactions. She is involved in the Framingham Heart Study, collaborating on projects to identify genes influencing diabetes related traits, pulmonary function and biomarkers of inflammation. She is a co-instructor for BS858 (Introduction to Statistical Genetics) in the Fall, and teaches BS860 (Statistical Genetics II) in the spring semester of even years.
