Dan Chasman

An Associate Professor at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School Boston, Daniel Chasman, Ph.D. is interested in genome-wide genetic analysis of cardiovascular traits and other related phenotypes. In particular, his research emphasizes genome-wide genetic analysis of plasma lipid components, inflammatory biomarkers, pharmacogenetic response to statin therapy, and migraines.

This research area is complemented by a secondary interest in integrating genome-wide functional annotations to support purely statistical evidence for genetic association and to aid in the interpretation of genetic signals. Previously, he was Director of Computational Biology and Statistical Genetics at Variagenics, a biotechnology company in Cambridge Massachusetts where he was engaged in exploring the potential for genetic testing for optimizing therapeutic strategies.
