Project summary

Luke will start his Fellowship in Professor Gil McVean's group at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics in Oxford, where he will investigate statistical techniques for studying the shared genetic underpinnings in human diseases. He is particularly interested in building models of the relationship between different autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. His project is in collaboration with Dr Jeffrey Barrett at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge, UK, and Professor Mark Daly at Massachusetts General Hospital in Cambridge, MA.
