 DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH
  Dr. Omenn's research focuses on cancer proteomics and informatics. He leads the HUPO Human Proteome Project and its Chromosome 17 team, investigates differential expression of splice variants in cancers, serves as associate director of the M-LEEaD Center for career development, and chairs the University-wide Center for Computational Medicine and Biology and the international board of the tranSMART Foundation.

There are proteomic and proteogenomic datasets for application of analytical tools, and there are research teams eager to engage in collaborative studies in each of these initiatives. A new project is being launched on data analytics and splice isoform analyses of single-cell data from cancers and from development biology studies of spermatogenesis (collaborations).

He has long-standing interests in mechanisms of genetic predispositions to risks from environmental and occupational exposures, pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics, and science-based risk analyses.
