Professional Overview

Dr. Song has a broad research interest in both methodological and collaborative research. He is interested in developing methods for statistical genetics and genomics, as well as methods for meta-analysis or integrative analysis of high-throughput data (e.g. ’omics data). He collaborated with physicians and biologists on various topics including cancer biology, mental health and reproductive medicine.
