Biography

Gary W. Beecham, Ph.D., Director of the Division of Research Informatics in the Center for Genetic Epidemiology and Statistical Genetics in the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics, is a statistical geneticist who develops models and methods for the analysis and interpretation of genetic data. This type of very complex work allows for the study of the distribution of genetic disease across different population groups. Beecham, who is also Research Assistant Professor in the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Department of Human Genetics, is currently involved in studies of Alzheimer disease and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. Trained as a statistical geneticist under Dr. Bruce S.
