Jacob C. Ulirsch

As part of a statistical genetics and experimental genomics research group, my work focuses on developing and applying novel methodologies to gain biological insights into genetic association signals. Specifically, I am involved in several projects to improve genetic fine-mapping for biobank-scale GWAS studies. Ultimately, we plan to test these results using massively parallel reporter assays […]
