Research Interests

His research focuses on developments of statistical methods and tools for biological applications, especially in molecular genetics area. The emphasis is on understanding the massive data generated in functional genomics as a statistician. For example, in microarray data, he has done extensive work on finding differentially expressed genes, especially on false discovery rates and recently false discovery proportion for multiple testing problems. He is interested in many areas of microarrays: experimental design, normalization, clustering analysis and how to connect microarray data with clinical data and other biological data: sequence information, chip-seq, real time PCR, functional annotation, flow cytometry and proteomics data.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Ge did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2015 and/or 2016: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
