Credentials: My research focuses on understanding how common genetic variants are functionally linked to risk for human diseases. In particular, I’m looking at common variants that increase risk of gliomas development. I use induced pluripotent stem cell-based models to understand how specific single nucleotide polymorphisms can modify cell state maintenance and contribute to tumor initiation.
