The mission of the Ritchie Lab is to improve the understanding of the underlying genetic architecture of common diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and pharmacogenomic traits among others. The approaches we explore will involve the development and application of new statistical and computational methods with a focus on the detection of gene-gene interactions, gene-environment interactions, and network and/or pathway effects associated with human disease.  Systems Genomics approaches, which involve the integration of multiple types of ‘omics data, is also a driving focus of the laboratory.  These meta-dimensional approaches hold the promise of providing a more comprehensive view of genetic and genomic information.

    EVENING TALKS
    The New York Genome Center’s Evening Talks events feature distinguished experts from around the world sharing genomic insights and research. They are intended to showcase and explain high science to the non-scientific community. Speakers present the latest research findings and explain its implication for helping improve clinical care for a wide array of serious diseases. The lecture is followed by a lively question-and-answer session and a post-event reception of hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. These popular free public events are held in the Center’s state-of-the-art ground-floor auditorium starting at 6:30 pm. The Evening Talks Series is sponsored by The New York Community Trust – Pyewacket Fund.
