Identifying low-frequency and rare genetic variation involved in type 2 diabetes using next-generation sequencing


  • Dr John Perry

    University of Exeter

Project summary

John's Fellowship is enabling him to continue his research on understanding the genetic architecture of complex diseases and traits, with a particular focus on the role of rare genetic variation in type 2 diabetes susceptibility. Based at the University of Exeter, John will be collaborating with Professor Mark McCarthy at the University of Oxford, Professor Timothy Spector at King's College London, Professor Michael Boehnke at the University of Michigan and Professor André Uitterlinden at Erasmus MC in the Netherlands.
