A Novel Method to Identify Gene-Gene and Gene-Environment Interactionws: Variance Prioritization
Guillaume Pare is Assitant Professor of pathology and Molecular Medicine at McMaster University and Director of the Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology laboratory. Dr. Pare is a Medical Biochemist with board certification from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
Dr. Pare completed a Master´s in Human Geneticat McGill University under the supervision of renowned geneticist Dr. Thomas Hudson. He further trained in genetic epidemiology with Dr. Pul Ridker at Harvard Mdical School. Dr. Pare currently holds a Canada Research Chair in Genetic and Molecular Epidemiology. His clinical interests are centered on lipoprotein disorders, obesity and cardiovascular disease prevention. His corresponding research interests are in cardiovascular genetics, biomarker development and pharmacogenomis.
These intersts have led to expertise in bioinformatics, high-throughput biology and genetic epidemiology. His latest contributions are the characterization of the common genetic determinants of inflammatory markers, lipoprotein fractions and antiplatelet agents action, as well as development of novel statisticals tools for analysis of genetic datasets.
