PROFESSOR | Genetics and Genomic Sciences
High dimensional inference & integrative genomics
I am interested in developing statistical and computational methods to address scientific questions based on data from high throughput biology/genetics experiments. The ultimate goal is to enhance our understanding of cell activities and disease initiation/progression to a system level by integrating information from diverse biological sources (genetics/genomics, proteomics, and phenotypes). Towards this goal, eff orts have been made to properly model each individual type of data and to effectively characterize interactions among different biology molecules. These eff orts all borrow strength from and contribute to the developments of high dimensional inference, a challenging yet thriving field in modern statistics.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device, biotechnology companies, and other outside entities to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their outside financial relationships.

Below are financial relationships with industry reported by Dr. Wang during 2023 and/or 2024. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Consulting or Other Professional Services Examples include, but are not limited to, committee participation, data safety monitoring board (DSMB) membership

  • The National Institutes of Health’s Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning Consortium to Advance Health Equity and Researcher Diversity (AIM-AHEAD) program

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
