Arvis Sulovari, a Cellular, Molecular, and Biomedical Sciences second year student, was awarded one of the scholarships from the Summer Institute in Statistical Genetics (SISG) at University of Washington. This summer, UW will hold the 18th SISG session where instructors from all over the country will be teaching several 3-day courses. These courses are designed to introduce geneticists to modern methods of statistical analyses and to introduce statisticians to the statistical challenges posed by modern genetic data. The courses Mr. Sulovari will be taking during his 10 day stay will combine topics in modern analysis of high-dimensional genetic data, quantitative human complex traits and analyses of large gene and protein regulatory networks.
“I am very excited for the opportunity and thankful to my P.I, Dr. Dawei Li, for helping me prepare the scholarship application.” said Mr. Sulovari, “I am already looking forward to coming back to UVM and applying all the new knowledge I would have learned at University of Washington to my current projects in the Li lab!”
