Mei-Ling Ting Lee, PhD (Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics;: Director, UM Biostatistics and Risk Assessment Center) received her PhD degree in 1980 in mathematical statistics from the University of Pittsburgh. She was on the faculty at Harvard University Schools of Medicine and Public Health and Ohio State before joining the UM in 2008. Dr. Lee has published >120 manuscripts and has substantial expertise analyzing high-dimensional genomic and proteomic data. In a pioneering paper (PNAS 2000), she showed the importance of replication in microarray studies and proposed statistical methods for such analyses. She also developed methods for assessing sample size and power for genomic studies. She is now developing new stochastic models for analyzing proteomic mass spec data and for protein identification. Dr. Lee has mentored a substantial number of undergraduate and graduate students during her career.
