Biomedical Genetics Projects

We are investigating the influence of genetic variation on the nature, expression and evolution of different human diseases and physiological processes. Many of these studies focus on the role of mitochondria in bioenergetics, but some examine other parts of the genome and their involvement in health and disease.
