Guanghua Xiao is a Professor (with Tenure) in the Department of Population & Data Sciences and the Department of Bioinformatics. He is appointed as the Mary Dees McDermott Hicks Chair in Medical Science. He is also a founding member of the Quantitative Biomedical Research Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He received his bachelor's training in Engineering from Tsinghua University and a Ph.D. degree in Biostatistics from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Xiao is the PI of a CPRIT (Cancer Prevention Institute of Texas) grant focusing on analyzing digital pathology data to improve lung cancer patient care. He was also the PI of an NIH R01 grant focusing on developing novel computational models to analyze genomics data to identify new potential therapeutic targets of lung cancer, and the PI on an NIH R21/R33 grant on developing integrative analysis methods to study genome-wide mRNA expression and epigenomic data. Dr. Xiao has developed novel computational models for integrative analysis, and he has extensive experience in the analysis of high throughput data such as next generation sequencing (NGS) data and tissue imaging data. His team has developed many user-friendly software and tools to analyze high-dimensional and complex genomic and imaging data. In recent years, his lab is focusing on developing AI methods for tissue imaging analysis and bioinformatics tools for spatial molecular profiling technologies.
