Molecular Epidemiology

We examine the genetic and molecular mechanisms that influence how long and how well we live. Our main focus is healthy aging - characterized as a long life in a good physical and cognitive state of health.

Genetic Methods and Techniques:

  • Genome-Wide Association-Studies (GWAS)
  • Epigenome-Wide Association Studies (EWAS)
  • Transcriptome-Wide Association Studies (TWAS)
  • Genome-wide Copy Number Variations (CNV)
  • DNA variations in candidate-genes and -pathways
  • Mitochondrial DNA copy-number
  • DNA sequencing
  • X-chromosome inactivation
  • miRNA
