Zhiping Weng received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering from University of Science and Technology of China in 1992 and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University in 1997. Dr. Weng is a full professor and Director of Program in Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology at University of Massachusetts Medical School. She develops and applies computational and statistical methods to study biological problems, e.g., gene regulation by transcriptional and post-transcriptional (small silencing RNA) mechanisms and protein-protein interaction. Dr. Weng is a key member of the ENCODE Consortium and leads its data analysis center. She is also a member of the data analysis center of the psychENCODE consortium. Her lab performs integrative analysis on the rich genomic, epigenomic, and transcriptomic data generated by the two consortia, aiming to decipher the human genome in health and disease.
