Sampson Lab for Kidney Genomics Research | Overview
The overall goal of the Sampson Lab for Kidney Genomics is to help improve the health of children with nephrotic syndrome through applied genomics, with a focus on samples and data collected from patients with this condition. We use computational genomics and bioinformatics to discover new, and map known, nephrotic syndrome-associated variants. We use systems genomics to integrate this genetic data with other genome-scale molecular datasets to try to understand the mechanisms linking these genetic changes with disease. And we use epidemiology to discover the clinical consequences for patients carrying disease-associated genetic variants.
