The Altshuler lab studies human genetic variation and develops laboratory and analytical methods for associating genotype and phenotype. Our main focus is type 2 diabetes, with projects in prostate cancer, lupus, and other diseases. Long-term, we hope to apply genetic information to improve diagnostics and therapeutics in the clinic.
