Description of research and teaching

Epigenetics of Complex Diseases & Traits

Our goal is to assess the contribution of genome and epigenome to obesity and other complex diseases and traits using study designs suitable for twin and population-based cohorts. We measure within-pair and intra-individual epigenetic and phenotypic differences and stability longitudinally, and aim at developing epigenetic biomarkers for disease risk prediction and potential intervention targets for complex diseases.
