Research Areas

My research intrest focus on two main areas. The first is the impact of non-HLA immunogenetics and its relevance to Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation outcome. The second area is computational personal genomics, its interpretation pipeline and its incorporation into care pathways.
