Core Faculty

Elizabeth R. Hauser, PhDElizabeth R. Hauser, PhD, is a Professor in the Section of Medical Genetics, Department of Medicine. Dr. Hauser is a statistical geneticist with experience in the development and application of methods for the analysis of affected sibling pair data in studies of complex genetic disorders. Her current research interests include cardiovascular genetics, informatics, and methodologic developments for complex diseases.

Dr. Hauser is affiliated with the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics program..
