Complex Disease Genetics

The Ripatti group studies genetics of common complex diseases from discovery to translation to health care. We utilize Finnish research cohorts and a global network of biobank data with longitudinal health event histories to identify genetic associations and potential causal variants modifying the risks of diseases. We also develop and test risk models to stratify individuals based on their risks for preventive actions or stratified treatment. With health care partners, we develop approaches to apply these models in routine health care.
