MHI Seminar Series presents Karen L. Mohlke, Ph.D. Professor and Associate Chair for Research, Department of Genetics, UNC-Chapel Hill

May 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Title Of Talk: “Genetic effects on gene expression and cardiometabolic traits”

Summary of Seminar:  Dr. Mohlke will describe genetic approaches to identify genes that influence cardiometabolic diseases and traits, such as obesity and high cholesterol levels. Starting with genome-wide studies of genetic variants associated with these traits, she will describe how genome-wide gene expression and chromatin accessibility data from adipose and liver tissue of hundreds of individuals can be used to identify genes and regulatory variants that influence disease risk.
