Joshua C. Bis
Joshua C. Bis is a genetic epidemiologist and Senior Research Scientist with the University of Washington Cardiovascular Health Research Unit. Dr. Bis’s primary research interest is in understanding the role of genomic variation with traits relevant to neurology, cardiovascular health, and aging. This work has focused on analysis methods, drug-gene interactions, clinical and subclinical atherosclerosis, cardiovascular risk factors, and a broad range of neurological traits including stroke, brain imaging endophenotypes, and Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr. Bis has pursued these questions within the Cardiovascular Health Study. He is also closely involved in several large-scale genomics collaborations: he co-leads working groups in the CHARGE consortium, the Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project, and BioData Catalyst and is an active participant in the Trans-Omics for Precision Medicine (TOPMed) Program, the International Genomics of Alzheimer’s Project (IGAP), MarkVCID, and the Cross-Cohorts Collaboration.
