Eunpyo Hong, Ph.D.

Profile Picture

Genetic Epidemiologic Researcher treating Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Dr. Eunpyo Hong Ph.D. is Research fellow at the Center for Genomic Medicine in Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston MA, USA. He has graduated in Hallym University with BS in Statistics and Informatics. He also has a Ph.D. in Medical Genetics with Genetic Epidemiology and Bioinformatics strongly interested in research related to population genetics, which aim to identify gene/sequence variations and assess a risk prediction on human complex diseases such as cancers, age-related, and metabolic diseases, using candidate gene, large-scale GWAS, WES, WGS, and RNAseq dataset involved the hundreds or thousands of study populations with subsequently applying Python and Perl languages. I investigated to identify susceptibility genes and develop genetic and nongenetic risk models on human complex traits such as hsCRP, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, tuberculosis, cancers, etc., using various statistical approaches such as polygenic/non-genetic risk scores, meta- and survival analyses, linear mixed model, and liability threshold model. Among my investigations, some papers were published during academic degrees; others are ongoing topics such as intracranial aneurysm, Huntington disorder, osteoporosis, liver functions, cancers (e.g., hepatocellular and lung carcinomas), etc. These subjects are described in more detail in my accompanying curriculum vitae (CV).

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
