Lana Garmire, PhD

Associate Professor

Lana Garmire, PhD is an Associate Professor of Biostatistics and Associate Professor of Computational Medicine & Bioinformatics at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. Dr. Garmire is an awardee of US Presidential Early Career Scientists and Engineers in 2019, the highest honor bestowed to the most outstanding early career scientists and engineers in the United States.

Before joining University of Michigan DCMB department, she rapidly rose to tenure (Dec. 2012 to Jun. 2017) at University of Hawaii Cancer Center, and has become a nationally and internationally recognizable translational bioinformatics scientist leading a multidisciplinary team of computational and experimental human genomics. She has mentored over 40 MD fellows, postdocs, graduate students and undergraduates of various academic backgrounds, in Biology, Mathematics, Phyiscs, (bio)Statistics, Bioengineering, Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. She has served on various NIH study sections. She is an Associate Editor of BMC Bioinformatics and Guest Editor of PLoS Computational Biology.
