Human Genetics Training Faculty


Bruce Aronow, PhD

Dr. Aronow is a computational geneticist and developmental biologist. His group carries out analyses of many different kinds of data, develops algorithms, and builds websites and databases.

John Harley, MD. PhD

Dr. Harley and his laboratory are interested in the genetics underlying autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus.

John Hogenesch, PhD

Dr. Hogenesch and his laboratory study the mammalian circadian clock using genomic and computational tools.

Taosheng Huang, PhD

Dr. Huang and his laboratory study the molecular basis of genetic syndromes, to apply the discoveries from rare diseases to common conditions and to develop treatments for genetic disease.

Kenneth Kaufman, PhD

Dr. Kaufman and his laboratory study the genetics of systemic lupus erythematosus.

Leah Kottyan, PhD

Dr. Kottyan and her laboratory are focused on identifying the mechanisms that underlie specific genetic associations with human disease.

Lisa Martin, PhD

Dr. Martin and her laboratory are focused on statistical genetics, allergic conditions, pediatric heart conditions, and obesity

Louis Muglia, MD. PhD

Dr. Muglia and his laboratory are primarily interested in defining the molecular and genetic mechanisms controlling the timing for birth in humans.

William Nichols, PhD

Dr. Prows and his laboratory are primarily interested in the genetics of pulmonary hypertension with a secondary interest in the genetics of Parkinson disease.

Mihaela Pavlicev, PhD

Dr. Pavlicev and her laboratory are focused on the evolution of mammalian reproduction, including ovarian cycle, maternal-fetal interface during pregnancy, gestational length and the regulation of parturition.

Daniel Prows, PhD

Dr. Prows and his laboratory seek to identify genetic determinants controlling variation in complex human traits by establishing a specific mouse model that captures one or more important features of the human disease.

Nathan Salomonis, PhD

Dr. Salomonis and his laboratory seek to develop new software and algorithms to identify complex functional relationships from whole transcriptome data.

Rolf Stottmann, PhD

The long-term goals of the Stottmann lab are to understand the genes and molecular mechanisms guiding both normal development and causing congenital malformations of the brain and face.

Ying Sun, PhD

Dr. Sun and her laboratory are focused on understanding the pathogenesis of Gaucher disease and other lysosomal storage diseases for development of specific therapies, and the roles of saposins in glycosphingolipids metabolism and neurodegeneration.

Matthew Weirauch, PhD

Dr. Weirauch and his laboratory are focused on using computational biology approached to understand the mechanisms of gene transcriptional regulation.

Peter White, PhD

Dr. White and his laboratory are interested in the development and application of novel approaches for disease gene discovery, including identifying causative genes for neuroblastoma, ADHD, autism, and congenital heart defects.

Ge Zhang, MD, PhD

Dr. Zhang and his laboratory are interested using statistical genetics and population genetics to decipher genetic mechanisms of disease.
