Michael Wu is an Associate Member in the Biostatistics and Biomathematics Program, Public Health Sciences Division, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Previously, the group was affiliated with the Department of Biostatistics, Gillings School of Global Public Health, The Unversity of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The major thrust of the group's research lies in the development and application of statistical methods for translational science and particularly for analysis of high-dimensional genomic data within the broader context of clinical trials as well as population-based genetic, genomic, epigenetic, and microbiome studies. Due to the affiliation with SWOG, specific applications often focus on cancer related outcomes, but additional disorders and disease areas of interest include birth outcomes, autoimmune disorders, cardiovascular disease, and environmental health related traits.
