Research Summary/Interests

Our lab studies complex/polygenic traits in dogs, with a particular emphasis on autoimmune disorders such as Addison’s disease and immune-mediated hemolytic anemia.

We are also interested in applying “big data” methods to veterinary medicine to help improve patient care and outcomes in a wide variety clinical disorders.

Our work relies extensively on next-generation sequencing technologies, computational resources (especially the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute), and programming in R.
