Professor of Biostatistics and KL2 Alum Receives the Provost’s Award for Excellence in Mentoring

Training the next generation of professional scholars is a vital part of the academic mission of the University of Pittsburgh. Fundamental to the success of the enterprise are the faculty members who serve as mentors to our graduate students. Ideally, faculty mentors provide intellectual and personal leadership that helps to support, encourage, and promote the personal and professional development of his or her students.

George C. Tseng, ScD, Professor of Biostatistics and Institute for Clinical Research Education alumnus, embodies the University’s mission of mentorship. Dr. Tseng received the 2019 Provost’s Award for Excellence in Mentoring which recognizes outstanding mentoring of graduate students seeking a research doctorate degree.

Dr. Tseng was a trainee in the Clinical and Translational Science (CTS) Scholars Program (KL2) from 2007 to 2009. He currently runs a statistical group in the Department of Biostatistics with a major focus on genomics and bioinformatics. He leads and mentors a team of students who collaborate with biologists and clinicians on projects including analyses of various high-throughput omics experimental data (e.g. micro-array based, sequencing based or mass spectrometry) for candidate marker detection, disease subtype discovery, machine learning, pathway knowledge learning and network analysis.

Congratulations to Dr. Tseng on this well-deserved achievement.
