Biography

Josée Dupuis, Ph.D, is a Professor and Chair of Biostatistics at Boston University School of Public Health. She previously held a faculty position at Northwestern University and a senior statistical geneticist position at Genome Therapeutics Corporation, a small biotech company. She has extensive experience in the development and application of methods for genome-wide association studies, gene by environment interaction investigation, genetic meta-analysis and rare variant analysis, with special emphasis on the development of novel statistical approaches to analyze genetic data collected on large families. She is involved in the Framingham Heart Study, collaborating on projects to identify genes influencing diabetes related traits, pulmonary function traits and atrial fibrillation. She teaches BS860 (Statistical Genetics II) in the spring semester of even years.
