Personal profile

Research interests

Diverse Groups Worked With (USA): worked with a lot of genetic data from South Florida Hispanics and Blacks

Keywords

  • study of the genetics of cardiovascular disease in a predominantly Hispanic population.
  • Study of the genetic etiology of complex disease – often in racially/ethnically diverse populations

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the experts' scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
