James Dai’s Lab works in statistical genetics and genomics, design and analysis of randomized clinical trials, statistical methods for high-dimensional feature selection and prediction, gene-treatment interaction, mediation and instrumental variables regression. Methodologically, his lab is also interested in cancer genomics topics, for example integrative genomic analyses and intra-tumor heterogeneity. The overarching scientific interest is to discover and validate and genomic markers that drive cancer etiology, predict cancer prognosis and treatment efficacy.
