Current Research Interests:

Ms. Zhou’s main collaboration has been with the Gynecologic Oncology Group. Varies projects had been done to cover the areas such as (1) survival outcomes prediction; (2) biomarkers exploration; (3) nomogram construction and (4) association examination. She is also involved in several projects conducting array CGH analysis, gene expression analysis and microRNA analysis range from prostate cancer, endometrial carcinoma to mesothelioma. Most recently, she is in involved in a research which applies the penalized likelihood approach in evaluating the biomarkers and environmental factors interaction.
