Our lab's mission is to develop advanced machine learning algorithms that integrate multiple omics data (e.g. genetics, genomics, epigenetics, metabolomics), environmental exposures (e.g. allergens, viral infections, lung microbiome), images, and clinical characteristics to personalize treatments or phenotyping pulmonary diseases such as sarcoidosis, asthma, and ARDS. Our long-term research goal is to develop a comprehensive algorithm that can predict the treatment responses and can be applied to clinical practice.
