Research summary

I am a Senior Lecturer in Genetic Epidemiology at the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol. My research is focused on the genetic aetiology of atopic dermatitis and related traits.

I am a leading member of the EAGLE eczema consortium, which brings together studies from around the world with eczema and genetic data in order to conduct large-scale research. Our aim is to identify genetic variants associated with eczema in order to improve understanding of the disease and inform therapeutic development. We have published two large genome-wide association studies for eczema, the largest of which (Paternoster et ...
