Epigenomic analysis of complex human traits and diseases.
The Absher Lab utilizes genomic approaches to study complex diseases and traits. Current projects include genetic and epigenetic studies of multiple forms of cancer, cardiovascular disease and its risk factors, and autoimmune disorders. The lab combines high-throughput genomic technologies and bioinformatic approaches to study human genetic and epigenetic variation that contributes to important public health issues.
The Absher Lab is supported in part by the National Institutes of Health (Award Numbers UL1TR001417, P30CA013148, R01DK104347, R01CA200653 and R01DK112358), the Laura Crandall Brown Foundation, and the UAB-HudsonAlpha Center for Genomic Medicine.
