Our focus

We study the genetic basis of cardiovascular traits and disease, follow up genetic leads to identify unsuspected mechanisms, and test the impact of genetics on response to drugs and environment.  We are leveraging the rapid growth of human genetics to identify genetic variants that underlie these diseases, translate genetic discoveries into an improved understanding of human physiology through clinically-focused research, and define the role of genetics and other factors in predicting patients’ risk of disease and likelihood of a beneficial or toxic response to drug therapies.
