Genetic epidemiology of complex traits

We use genetic and genomic approaches to better understand the distribution and causes of diseases and traits, with a focus on body composition, cardiometabolic disease, physical activity, as well as other complex traits. Our approaches include: 

  • Identification and characterization of genes underlying complex human traits and diseases

  • Gene-by-environment interactions

  • Differences in etiology and genetics across racial/ethnic groups
