Cristian Valencia

I’m a postdoctoral fellow that is interested in applying genetics and genomics to understand the interindividual variability on immune-related phenotypes. I joined the Raychaudhuri lab in 2021 and I am working on integrating single cell multi-omic technologies to better understand the genetics and the regulatory programs of immune mediated disease like type 1 diabetes.

The emergence of precision medicine and its diagnostic, therapeutic, as well as preventative applications, highlights the necessity for a better understanding of the underlying molecular processes responsible for disease pathology. Integration of clinical phenotype data with population-scale genetic variation data can identify new targets for genetic diagnosis and gene therapies. I am utilizing my medical, molecular and genetic […]

We use computational and systems biology tools to dissect beneficial effects of exercise training against obesity in single tissues and across tissues at levels of transcriptomics, epigenomics, metabolomics and proteomics. Through these efforts, we are aiming to better understand genetic and environmental factors contributing to obesity, and develop new therapeutics against type 2 diabetes, metabolic […]

Katie Siewert, Ph.D.

We are developing new methods to use gene expression data to identify sets of genes whose expression is associated with disease. These gene sets can help in the understanding of disease etiology and prioritize potential causal genes after a genetic association study. We plan to apply our new methods to integrate gene expression information from […]
