Ruize Liu, PhD

Ruize Liu is a Postdoc in the Stanely Center at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and the Analytic and Translational Genetics Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, advised by Dr. Mark Daly and Dr. Hailiang Huang. His research focuses on studying the regulatory function of genetic associations in complex disorders including schizophrenia and inflammatory bowel diseases. He is interested in developing novel analyses to understand the functions of the non-coding genome that are implicated by complex disorders. His research focuses on designing computational tools to integratively combine large-scale genetic, expression, transcriptome and epigenome data to drive the study. He developed novel analyses to find genomic variants regulating exon-skipping and isoform balance in a genome-wide fashion by integrated analysis large-scale genetic and expression data. He earned his Ph.D. from the Animal Genetics and Breeding at the Huazhong Agricultural University.
