Effects of Flame Retardants on brain function and attentional deficits in school-age children – brain imaging, neurobehavioral, and gut microbiome studies in a longitudinal birth cohort

Project: Research project

Project Details


Dr. Wei Zhang has a broad background in human genetics, bioinformatics, and biostatistics, with an emphasis on elucidating the genetics and epigenetics of complex traits, including risks for complex diseases and drug response. In particular, he has extensive experience in the analysis of genome-wide data generated from high-throughput platforms, including the next-generation sequencing technologies and various microarray platforms. Dr. Zhang will work closely with Dr. Baccarelli, his long-term collaborator, to supervise bioinformatics processing and data analysis of the high-throughput data that will be generated from this project. Dr Zhang will also participate in the preparation of related manuscripts and reports.
