Summary

The overarching theme of my research is the use of high-throughput omics to bridge the gap between research and medicine. My initial interest was in expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL), and their possibilities for translating genetics to medical use. This followed a further step into actual industrial drug and pharmacogenetics development from the technique, produced two articles on drug development and precision medicine in autoimmune diseases. Further striving towards this goal motivated my move to the bioinformatics department of DTU. I’m currently involved in a number of genetics- and bioinformatics related start up initiatives (e.g. www.geneplaza.com, www.impute.me, www.talentsoftomorrow.com) as well as expanding my portfolio of academic research.
