She is the Director of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute Bioinformatics Shared Resource and the OCTRI Translational Bioinformatics Program. In 2010, Dr. McWeeney was selected as a Kavli Frontiers of Science Fellow. The focus of her research is on the development and application of statistical and computational methodologies for functional genomics data such as gene expression (microarray and RNA-seq), chIP-Seq and proteomics. Applications of this work have included such complex traits as diabetes, cancer and alcoholism. There is also a strong interest in her group in network inference, particularly for applications in cancer and infectious disease. Related to these analyses is a long standing interest in data cleaning and integration.
