Strategic Research

Disease Genomics

The main research goals of the group focus on:

  • elucidating how genomic factors modify health status during life
  • what the hidden heritability of the complex traits is
  • how we can incorporate this genomic information into predictive models, for disease, treatment, or prognosis


The research lines of the group are:

  1. Genomic epidemiology of cancer and common disorders
  2. Development of methods to integrate Electronic Health Records (EHR) into genomic research
  3. Integration of population genomic variants into predictive models for cancer and common disorders (prevention, prognosis, prediction)
  4. Promotion of patient involvement in health and disease management through a biobank open resource
