Current Projects

Along with our collaborators at USC and across institutions, we have formed an interdisciplinary team with expertise in birth cohort research, integrated statistical methods, multi-omic biomarker analysis and in-vitro replication. Through advanced integrative statistical methods, we aim to explore mechanistic pathways of disease and identify at-risk individuals.
