Genetic Epidemiology: Methods and Applications. 3 Credits. We anticipate that the proposed project, prepared by a multi-disciplinary team with expertise in CVD and metabolic epidemiology, nutritional biochemistry, metabolomics, bioinformatics, biostatistics, and genetics, will inform disease mechanisms, with strong potential for identifying biomarkers of CVD risk.
