 About Publications 


Dr. Dong Wang received his Ph.D. in Genetics from Iowa State University in 2003 and received his Ph.D. in Statistics in 2006 also from Iowa State University. He was a faculty member in the Department of Statistics, University of Nebraska-Lincoln from 2006 to 2014 with the rank of assistant professor and later associate professor. He worked for three years as the leader of Statistics and Mathematics Group at Dow AgroSciences between 2014 and 2016. He joined NCTR in December 2016 as a senior staff fellow in the Biostatistics Branch of Division of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics.

Research Interests

Dr. Dong Wang has interest in various aspects of statistics and bioinformatics. He has experience and interest in risk assessment, statistical genomics, reproducibility, high dimensional modeling, and Bayesian methods. Currently he is conducting research on measurement error models regarding biomarkers based on deep-sequencing technology and constructing Bayesian networks for drug-induced liver toxicity by integrating in vitro and in vivo data in addition to expert knowledge.
