Genetics and Transcriptome Study of Alzheimer’s Disease

Xiaoling Zhang, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor of Medicine in Biomedical Genetics, Boston University School of Medicine

Xiaoling Zhang, MD, PhD, seeks to discover the genetic risk factors of complex human diseases, and further identify their underlying functional mechanisms. She received her doctorate in Bioinformatics from Boston University and her Master’s degree in Computer Science from the State University of New York at Buffalo.

After being trained in epidemiology genetics and genomics at the NIH-NHLBI Framingham Heart Study, she is actively pursuing the driving force of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and its shared genetic structure and functional pathways with other diseases including cardiometabolic disorders by integrating genome-wide DNA & RNA sequencing and a variety of functional genomic data.
