We are interested in the genetic architecture of complex traits. Our current research is focused on using cerebrospinal fluid protein levels as intermediate traits, or endophenotypes, to identify genetic risk factors for Alzheimer's disease. We also have several ongoing projects using whole genome sequence data to identify risk factors for Alzheimer's disease, healthy aging and other traits. We have collaborators at several large clinical centers and focus on data analysis and bioinformatics. Please click on the Research tab for details on the funded work in the Kauwe Lab.
