Topics in my portfolio:


Ruzong Fan, Ph.D, is an investigator in  Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Branch (BBB) of Division of Intramural Population Health Research (DIPHR), NICHD. He received his first Ph.D in Probability Theory  from Institute of Applied Mathematics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing in 1988; and his second Ph.D in biostatistics from University of Michigan -- Ann Arbor, 1998. Dr. Fan's research interests focus on statistical genetics, stochastic modeling, stochastic processes and applications.
