Research interests

  • Genetic regulation of Lipoprotein(a) and genomics of the Lipoprotein(a) gene
    • Investigation of extreme Lipoprotein(a) phenotypes
    • Mutation screening of the LPA gene locus in family and populations with extreme Lp(a) phenotypes
    • Development of approaches for mutation screening and genotyping of variants in the LPA KIV-2 copy number repeat
    • Regulatory variants in the LPA locus
  • Applications of Nanopore sequencing to the Lipoprotein(a) gene and other complex genome regions
  • Genomics of complex phenotypes with focus on lipoproteins and genome-wide association studies
  • Functional follow-up of SNP associations from association studies
