Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Rice’s research interests include methodological issues related to defining / refining the measurement of complex traits through statistical methods, and in analytical / methodological issues underlying genetic studies, including genome-wide association study data. Her applied research is largely in genetic epidemiological investigations of traits related to the metabolic syndrome (obesity, diabetes, hypertension and lipids). She has published over 190 research articles in these areas. Dr. Rice is currently PI of a Data Coordinating Center for the GenSalt study, which is a dietary sodium intervention in hypertensive Chinese families. She is a Co-Investigator on other multi-center family and genetic studies (HyperGEN, HERITAGE). Dr. Rice also has active interests in training and mentoring activities. She is Co-Director for the Summer Institute Program to Increase Diversity (SIPID), and teaches in the SIPID program, in the Genetic Epidemiology Master of Science (GEMS) program, and in a summer training program for undergraduates (SIBS/Bridge).
