About the Sofer lab

We use genetics and omics to undersatnd sleep, cognitive decline, and other related health measures, in diverse populations. 

Current research projects: 

  • Statistical genetics: method development for genetic association studies.
  • Genetics of cognitive decline and brain MRI markers.
  • Omics analysis: methods and pipeline development for analyzing and integrating ‘omics data (DNA methylation, gene expression/RNA-seq, metabolomics, proteomics).
  • Over-night sleep measures and their association with other health outcomes (and omics).
