Albert Mark Gold, Ph.D., F.A.C.M.G. • Project leadership for a series of collaborations with NCI’s Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Genes, Cognition and Psychosis Program. These involve genotyping samples from ongoing studies of lung cancer, dysplastic nevus/ cutaneous malignant melanoma, retinoblastoma, and studies of Nevoid Basal Cell Carcinoma (Gorlin's syndrome) and psychiatric samples from patients diagnosed with schizophrenia and providing technical support and guidance to investigators in these agencies. For this project, Developed rapid, high-throughput, genotyping technology with collaborators at Celera, Applied Biosystems and Roche Molecular Systems. • Project leader for investigating whether the common disease / common variant hypothesis applies to human breast cancer with Dr. Kenneth Offit, Chief of Genetics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Formal collaborator on Dr. Offit’s funded studies with the Breast Cancer Research Fund and Starr Foundation. Participant in Data Analysis group of Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA1/2 on BRCA2 Modifier gene scan being carried out at Harvard/MIT Broad Institute. • Initiated a high performance computing in collaboration with the Advanced Biomedical Computing Center (SAIC-Frederick), Human Genome Sciences, Inc. in Rockville, MD., and investigators at National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke (NINDS) in Bethesda, and the Baylor College of Medicine’s Department of Molecular and Human Genetics, to annotate segmental duplication and polymorphic short tandem repeats in the human genome and to provide functional insight. • Developed and implemented several computational capabilities within the Human Genetics Section of the Laboratory of Genetic Diversity, and later in the Laboratory of Experimental Immunology. Among these are: (1) A database management system that can provide a complete accounting for nearly 20,000 DNA samples and attendant data in the laboratory. (2) Application of a series of programs that can calculate genetic haplotypes using both Expectation Maximization (EM) and Bayesian algorithms from Case-Control data. (3) Programs that test the significance of haplotype-disease associations through the use of permutation algorithms and (4) A series of methods that measure linkage disequilibrium through SNP typing closely linked markers. 2
