Talk title:  “Using Genetics to Understand Heterogeneity In Complex Diseases and Traits”


The Center for Genetic Epidemiology is hosting a virtual seminar with Dr. JJ (Zhe) Wang, ( instructor and Postdoctoral Fellow at The Loos Lab, the Genetics of Obesity and Related Traits Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Wang holds a Ph.D in Genetic Epidemiology from the University of Texas Health Science Center. Under the supervision of Dr. Eric Boerwinkle, Dr. Wang's PhD research focused on integrating genomics, metabolomics and environmental factors together to facilitate the understanding of complex traits like cardiovascular disease and related cardio-metabolic traits.
