Join us on Monday, May 12th from 6:30 – 8:00 pm for Research Night at the Kannapolis Research Campus!  Dr. Simon Gregory will give an Update on the Murdock Study Cohort.

The purpose of the study is to identify biomarkers to learn more about the onset and progression of the disease.

Dr. Gregory is an Associate Professor in the Section of Medical Genetics, Department of Medicine. He is also the Director of the Duke Bioinformatics Workshop, a forum for researchers to gain in-depth experience in using publicly available molecular genomics databases.

His role at the Duke Center for Human Genetics is to apply the experience gained from leading the mapping of the mouse genome and sequencing human chromosome 1 to elucidating the molecular mechanisms underlying multi-factorial diseases. Dr. Gregory’s group is pioneering the application of high-resolution genomic microarrays for the discovery of chromosomal abnormalities and identification of epigenetic factors associated with human diseases such as cancer and autism. This project aims to correlate copy number profiles and factors such as methylation, with clinical phenotypes and differential levels of gene expression.

Dr. Gregory’s primary research area involves the identification of the complex genetic factors that give rise to the development of cardiovascular disease and the detection of genes involved in multiple sclerosis. His areas of special expertise are genome mapping, positional cloning, and determining the effect that sequence variation has upon the etiology of genetic disease.
