We are a research lab within the Institute for Molecular Medicine (IMED) in the Dept. of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA that does research in computational genetics and bioinformatics. We are also affiliated with the interdepartmental Bioinformatics program and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center at UCLA
We are interested in developing computational and statistical methods for understanding the genetic architecture of common human diseases. We are particulary interested in methods that leverage the genetic diversity across and within populations for large scale studies. For more details please see our research projects and publications.
We are recruiting talented postdocs/students interested in developing computational and statistical methods for medical genetics! See here how to apply.
