Yun Hao


Graduate Student

Yun Hao is a PhD student in the laboratory of Nicholas Tatonetti whose current research interests are related to systems pharmacology. The goal of his research is to understand how biological systems respond to drug molecules at the pathway level, and to apply the results to other research topics in pharmacology such as drug-repositioning and prediction of adverse events.
Before coming to Columbia, Yun worked with Dr. Weidong Tian at Fudan University, where his work focused on developing a new approach to perform gene set enrichment analysis. He also worked with Dr. Jing Zhang at Yale, where he used a Bayesian selection model to analyze dynamic functional connectivity in human brain.
