Conceptual Schematic

THE THREE MOST SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT DEFINE YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM:
What are the genetic determinants of lung and vascular diseases?

Does the genetic variant associated with a disease play functional role in pathogenesis

Can we predict disease development, progression and respond to treatment using genetic and peripheral blood biomarkers?

FIVE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR AREAS OF INTEREST:
Genetics, Biomarker discovery, Functional genomics, Biorepository, Predicting disease progression

TECHNIQUES, MODELS, METHODS, ANALYTIC APPROACHES, ETC:

Genetics, Biorepository, DNA and protein biomarker analysis, Functional dissection of disease relevant genetic variants, Gene regulation
