Genetics and genomics of Type 2 diabetes and functional genomic studies in Type 2 diabetes and metabolic disorders

Responsibilities & Activities

My primary interest is in understanding the genetic underpinnings of type 2 diabetes and related metabolic disorders. My portfolios include projects in genetics and genomics of T2D which seek to identify genes and pathways contributing to T2D and its complications. I am also responsible for projects related to functional genomic modeling of T2D and metabolic disorders in model organisms, including mammalian and non-mammalian systems.

I also serve as the program officer for the Accelerating Medicines Partnership for Type 2 Diabetes (AMP-T2D).

Research Programs

Diabetes Genetics & Genomics
Genetic mechanisms underlying type 1 and type 2 diabetes and how genetic and epigenetic variation influences the metabolism of therapeutics.
