Research Description

My group’s research is aimed at identifying and characterizing genetic contributors to complex disease susceptibility.

Type 2 diabetes: We are using a genome-wide association study (GWAS) approach to: (1) identify and characterize genetic variants that contribute to type 2 diabetes susceptibility in African American Sea Islanders of coastal South Carolina and Georgia, and (2) identify variants contributing to lipoprotein subclasses - predictors of cardiovascular outcomes - measured using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
