Description

Faculty:

  • Abbas Dehghan MD, PhD (Associate professor, Imperial College London)
  • Mohsen Ghanbari MD, PhD (Assistant professor, Erasmus MC)

This course aims to give a basic introduction to various methods used in classical genetic epidemiology. In combination with the two courses Genomics in Molecular Medicine and Genome-Wide Association Studies present in the Erasmus Summer Programme, the course offers an excellent introduction to genetic epidemiologic research. The course targets a wide range of participants, including students, epidemiologists, clinicians and molecular biologists with no background in genetic epidemiology. Participants are introduced to the basic principles of population genetics, segregation, linkage and association analyses. The relevant background of human genetics and statistics is presented. The goal of the course is that participants are able to interpret the findings in modern genetic research.
