A. (Ahmad) Vaez Barzani
Ahmad has been interested in using bioinformatics-based approaches to unravel the multifaceted genomic mechanisms controlling complex traits or diseases. During his PhD trajectory, he tried to provide a comprehensive walk-through of the classic steps of genomic association mapping using bioinformatics tools and approaches. Also, in parallel to the successful completion of his PhD trajectory, he has been leading one of the largest international consortia of meta-analysis of Genome-Wide Association studies (GWAS), including more than 200,000 samples from more than 70 centers, designed to explore genomic determinants of C-reactive protein (CRP). This mega-scale project has successfully identified a large number of novel genomic markers underlying serum levels of CRP (manuscript in preparation).
