Principal areas of expertise: Human genetics; Statistical methods; Genetic epidemiology; Molecular epidemiology



♦ Genetic epidemiology of common disease, with particular reference to statistical methodology and computation

Research in the Dudbridge lab includes: association analysis with missing data, especially haplotype analysis in family-based designs; analysis of genomewide association scans, especially multiple testing problems; multilocus association analysis; Mendelian randomisation and causal inference; disease risk prediction using genetics; software development.

Diseases in which Dr. Dudbridge carries out his research: cancer, cardiovascular disease, non-communicable diseases, obesity
