Professor Lyle Palmer leads an interdisciplinary program aimed at investigating the genetic epidemiology of common, chronic disease. In particular, we are actively investigating the genetic determinants of obesity, growth in early life and childhood, and various chronic diseases – with a current focus on obstructive sleep apnea. This team is also active in the area of precision medicine, and together with clinical and engineering collaborators is leading a program of methodological and applied research in precision radiology. Members of the group also conduct methodological research in biostatistics and epidemiology.
