Our research investigates the underlying genetic and environmental determinants of human disease, with a focus on processes associated with aging, cancer, chronic diseases, and infectious agents.
Ongoing Research Projects
Next-generation genomics and development of parametric and non-parametric population models/tools to study the role of the genome in cancer and disease.
Genomic and Gene Regulation studies to capture and examine the impact of genetics and environment on phenotypic traits in large population cohorts in Canada and across Africa.
Evolution and variation of mutations and recombination events among populations, families and gametes.
Molecular and statistical genomic epidemiology projects across Canada.
Malaria Genome sequencing of new and old-world isolates of Plasmodium falciparum and related malaria species.
