Kwangsik Nho, PhD
My research interest is the medical imaging genomics and data (text) mining. I had been interested in computational physics to model various physical phenomena using Monte Carlo simulation techniques. Genome-wide association analysis has been become an important topic in genetics studies of complex diseases owing to the recent advances in high-throughput genotyping techniques. Imaging genomics is a form of genetic association analysis using a measure of brain structure (volume) as a phenotype. Currently I am analyzing genome-wide SNP data and candidate neuroimaging measures of the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI). In addition, I joined into the informatics Tool Development team for MRSA Data Mining and Surveillance.
