Hui Shen is a geneticist with specific training and expertise in genomics and epigenomics of human complex disorders. His current research interests focus mainly on identifying and characterizing genetic and epigenetic variation that affects susceptibility to complex human disorders, such as osteoporosis and sarcopenia. He is now expanding his research area into the cutting-edge metagenomics of osteoporosis and sarcopenia. He teaches BINF 7500 Epigenetics and Epigenomics and BINF 7010 Population and Quantitative Genetics. Prior to joining the faculty at Tulane, he was an assistant professor at University of Missouri-Kansas City and a postdoctoral researcher at Yale University. He received his doctor of philosophy in human genetics from the Creighton University and his bachelor of science in molecular biology from University of Science and Technology of China.

My research interests are mainly focused on identifying and characterizing genetic and epigenetic variation that affects susceptibility to complex human disorders, such as osteoporosis and sarcopenia. Toward these ends, we are integrating multidisciplinary approaches including genetic epidemiology, functional genomics, epigenomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, and molecular biology. We recently performed an epidgenome-wide MeDIP sequencing (...
