Statistical Genetics Laboratory (SGL)


The goal of the Statistical Genetics Laboratory (SGL) is to understand human health and disease through the development and application of statistical methods for identifying genetic risk factors. The SGL is interested in the genetic epidemiology of lung and colon cancer and the gene mapping of causal factors and modifier loci for rare syndromes including Lynch syndrome, Peutz-Jeghers syndrome and Li-Fraumeni syndrome. The SGL is also interested in the genetic epidemiology of select autoimmune conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, primary biliary cirrhosis, and alopecia areata. The SGL facilitates these studies through the collection and management of data from family studies and is interested in the design of clinical studies to identify predictors of cancer development and progression.
