Research areas

1. Genetics (and Epidemiology) & Metabolomics of Chronic Complex Disorders

a. Diabetes and its Complications (CVD and Kidney Disease)

b  Early Life Diseases (Asthma, Allergy, Infections) 

c. Cardio-Metabolic traits

d. Neuro-psychiatric traits

Main research areas

Uncovering the Genetic Archetecture and Causal Genes and Pathways (using Bioinformatics and Network Medicine approaches) for: 

1. Diabetes and its Micro and Macrovascular Complications

2. Asthma and infections in early life

Thus improving disease prediction, and identifying potential drug targets 

Current research

  • Genetics of severe childhood asthma -collaborating with Harvard University Hospital

  • Metabolomics and genetics of diabetes related complications (like kidney and cardiovascular disorders) – collaborating with key European consortia

  • A cutting edge project to discover the common genetic pathways between asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease (COPD) and obesity – where I bring together University of Copenhagen (NNF CBMR), Steno Diabetes Centre, COPSAC and Harvard.
