The foundation of my research is analysis of genetic associations with quantitative traits, such as disease biomarkers and endophenotypes, to help further our understanding of complex disease. Currently my research integrates genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and bioinformatics methods to help determine the underlying biology impacting Alzheimer’s disease (AD). By focusing on biological mechanisms rather than clinical diagnosis, my research will not only help in understanding AD pathology but also in understanding disorders that share some of the same biological mechanisms. With greater understanding of the underlying biological mechanisms of disease, we can begin to explore therapeutic targets.
