Joshua C. Bis

Joshua Bis is currently a Research scientist with the University of Washington's Cardiovascular Health Research Unit. He received his Ph.D. in epidemiology from the University of Washington School of Public Health. Dr. Bis's primary research interest is understanding the role of genomic variation with traits relevant to cardiovascular health and aging. 

Dr. Bis has pursued these questions within the Cardiovascular Health Study and the Heart and Vascular Health Studies. He is also involved in several large-scale genomics collaborations: he co-leads working groups in the CHARGE consortium and the Alzheimer's Disease Sequencing Project and has actively participated in the NHLBI's Exome Sequencing Project (ESP), the International Genomics of Alzheimer's Project (IGAP), and the Trans-Omics for Precision Medicine (TOPMed) program.  

In these settings, his 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.
