Dan Roden Lab, 2023 Grad

Residency: Anesthesia at University of Michigan

Graduate Program: Human Genetics

Dissertation: Addressing challenges to genomic medicine: effects of rare and common variation on arrhythmia and pharmacogenetic phenotypes

Hometown: Karachi, Pakistan

Undergraduate Institution: Yale University

Research Interests: I am interested in combining computational and basic science approaches to understand the genome’s contribution to drug response and physiology to improve peri-operative outcomes for patients. My dissertation work focused on high throughput approaches to VUS classification in the cardiac sodium and potassium genes and the contribution of common variation to drug response phenotypes.
