Research projects

  • Genetic prediction of type 2 diabetes in the ENGAGE (European Network for Genetic and Genomic Epidemiology) project. In this project we investigate 48 genetic variants (SNPs) reported to be associated with type 2 diabetes and/or glycemic traits by meta-analysis of longitudinal data of a large sample size.
  • Analyze changes in HbA1c over time in diabetic and non-diabetic individuals. We investigate the association between HbA1c changes and genetic risk variants of type 2 diabetes by GE (generalized estimating equation) analysis of longitudinal data.
