Grant Schissler is an Assistant Professor of Statistics at the University of Nevada, Reno. His research interests are driven by interdisciplinary problems, often in the biomedical domain. Recently, he's helped to build statistical informatics tools that allow clinical researchers to interpret molecular data, on the scale of individual patients (aiming to conduct precision medicine). These problems involve bioinformatic skills, statistical modeling, statistical high-performance computing, and software engineering to provide insights towards understanding disease prevention and treatment.
