Welcome to the Crawford lab!
My expertise is in genetic epidemiology and human genetics, and my current research interests map to the interface of genetic epidemiology and big data biomedical informatics. My laboratory accesses epidemiologic and clinical collections to characterize common and rare genetic variants associated with human diseases and traits in diverse populations. We also are interested in identifying pleiotropy and environmental modifiers of these genetics associations, including pharmacogenomics.
Established in 2006, the main objectives of the Crawford lab include 1) conducting original scientific research in the biomedical sciences, 2) mentoring the next generation of scientists, and 3) promoting STEM for women and other underrepresented groups in science.
