  2. Genomics for precision medicine in underserved populations: unique opportunities for novel research with our collaborators in South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Brazil and India.
  3. Genetically informed causal inference in epidemiology: development of methods exploiting genetic data and relatedness to strengthen causal inference in observational research.
  4. Ethical, legal and social implications of genomics and genomic epidemiology studies: bringing together our expertise in sociology, psychology, heath services research, medical law, and ethics. Genetically informed causal inference in epidemiology (Lead: Frank Dudbridge): development of methods exploiting genetic data and relatedness to strengthen causal inference in observational research.
