Research directions

RESEARCH DIRECTIONS:

  • association studies in young population of Moldova. We use this approach to identify genetic loci associated with obesity, cholesterol levels, type 2 diabetes related metabolic traits, and cardiovascular risk factors.
  • Interaction of genetic variants with environmental factors to influence the underlying biology of complex diseases and traits.
  • Using of bioinformatics approaches to narrow down the spectrum of potential functionally associated variants for future testing.
