Degree Institution: University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Degree: Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering 2008
Dr. Weijun Luo received his PhD from the University of Michigan in 2008. Right after graduate school, he started as a senior computational scientist at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL). He got promoted to a Research Investigator in 2010. At CSHL, he worked on all types of high throughput microarray and sequencing experiment design, data analysis and quality assessment. He led the bioinformatics and computational efforts in a broad range of cutting-edge research projects. Dr. Luo joined the Department of Bioinformatics and Genomics at UNC-Charlotte in July 2011.
