Biography

Eden R. Martin, Ph.D., is Director of the Center for Genetic Epidemiology and Statistical Genetics at The John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics. She is a statistical geneticist whose interest is in mapping genes for complex diseases like Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, and autism. Specifically, her research has focused on developing extensions of a transmission/disequilibrium test (TDT) for linkage and association studies in nuclear families, such as the Pedigree Disequilibrium Test (PDT) for analysis of linkage disequilibrium in general pedigrees, and the APL test for haplotype analysis. She has also developed a suite of analysis programs for the X chromosome and developed methods for testing gene-gene interaction. She is a professor in the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation of Human Genetics.
