The Willer Lab

The K.G Jebsen Center for Genetic Epidemiology has had close and active collaboration with the Department of Biostatistics' Center for Statistical Genetics at the University of Michigan since 2010 (HUNT-MI collaboration). Here we collaborate with biostatistics Cristen Willer, Goncalo Abecasis and Michael Boehnke who is a team of world-renowned statistical geneticists. Willer is the Michigan PI of HUNT-MI and the group have been interacting through weekly phone calls and annual face-to-face meetings for the last four years. Willer, Abecasis and Boehnke have +44,000 scientific citations and +60 papers published in Nature, Science, Nature Genetics and NEJM over the last 5 years.

MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit

We have an active collaboration with Professor George Davey Smith, head of the MRC Integrative Epidemiology unit at the University of Bristol. With more than 1000 peer-reviewed academic publications, he has been highly successful in multiple fields of epidemiology, from life-course epidemiology and the population health contributions of the new genetics to systematic reviewing of evidence of effectiveness of health care and health policy interventions. He has been highly successful in developing novel causal analysis methods in population-based and clinical health sciences. Of particular relevance to our collaboration, he has pioneered the development of Mendelian Randomization analyses, a novel technique that utilizes genetic variation to examine causal associations in observational studies.
