Investigation of the genetic determinants of common complex diseases and traits

I am a clinical genetic epidemiologist at the University of Leicester and an Honorary Consultant in Public Health, and took up an MRC Clinician Scientist Fellowship award in 2007. Our research involves assessing the relationship between genome-wide sequence variation and copy number variation and common diseases. I co-lead genome-wide consortium studies for lung function and blood pressure. Recent work of our team includes the discovery of novel loci for blood pressure, novel loci for lung function, and contributions to the Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium Copy Number Variation Group. Ongoing work includes the discovery of rare variants underlying respiratory disease and the study of the role of copy number variation in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
