My research group works on a broad range of human genetics projects.  I have worked for over 20 years in the field of computational biology and genetics.  Our current projects are on:

The genetics of opioid use after major surgery

The genetics of cognitive impairment in HIV/AIDS patients

The mitochondrial genetics of diabetes related phenotypes in HIV/AIDS patients

New statistical methods of Phenome Wide Association Studies (PheWAS)

Diabetic retinopathy and mitochondrial haplogroups.

We collaborate actively with wet-lab and clinical researchers worldwide.  Much of our current work in based on the BioVU resource, a de-identified version of the Vanderbilt Electronic Medical Record, combined with DNA samples for genotyping.
