Josée Dupuis, Ph.D, is a Professor and Chair of Biostatistics at Boston University School of Public Health. She previously held a faculty position at Northwestern University and a senior statistical geneticist position at Genome Therapeutics Corporation, a small biotech company. She has extensive experience in the development and application of methods for genome-wide association studies, gene by environment interaction investigation, genetic meta-analysis and rare variant analysis, with special emphasis on the development of novel statistical approaches to analyze genetic data collected on large families. She is involved in the Framingham Heart Study, collaborating on projects to identify genes influencing diabetes related traits, pulmonary function traits and atrial fibrillation. She teaches BS860 (Statistical Genetics II) in the spring semester of even years.

I am Professor and Interim Chair of Biostatistics at the School of Public Health. I have been a mentor to over 35 student, post-doctoral and junior faculty trainees on research projects, and I have mentored many students, fellows and faculty in career development. I have also served as a mentor for the early-career faculty development program. I was fortunate to have outstanding and influential mentors throughout my career, and I strongly believe in "paying it forward" by providing the kind of mentoring that I was fortunate to receive. My research expertise is statistical genetics, with special emphasis on the development and implementation of new statistical approaches for rare variant analysis, gene by environment evaluation and meta-analysis, with a special emphasis on the analysis of family data. These new methods have been applied to multiple disease areas, such as type-2 diabetes and related traits, pulmonary functions and inflammation biomarkers, in order to elucidate the genetic architecture of these traits.
