Thesis

Molecular Genetics of Vanin 1, a novel cardiovascular disease gene

Summary

My research focuses on the identification and characterisation of non-coding sequence variants in the cardiovascular disease gene, Vanin-1.

Why my research is important

This research will yield insight into how we currently characterise genetic variants for their capacity to influence gene expression with particular reference to whether this is a cell type-specific or context-dependant occurrence.
