Research

Genetic variants associated with blood disorders and blood cell formation
We are interested in how genetic variation influence blood cell formation and blood cancer risk. The research group is markedly multi-disciplinary, and comprises 16 members with complementary expertise (clinical, computational, experimental). Our output includes clinically implemented discoveries, and publications in top-tier journals like Nature Genetics, Nature Communications, EMBO Molecular Medicine, and Blood.
