Jinane E. from the University of Ottawa interviews Dr. Mete Civelek, a distinguished researcher and professor in the department of biomedical engineering at the University of Virginia. Dr. Civelek’s research focuses on studying the complex interactions between genes and the environment that increase the risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Dr. Civelek and his team employ cutting-edge bioinformatics tools to unravel the molecular pathways associated with these diseases and to develop personalized medicine strategies for cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. If you’ve ever been curious about computational biology applied to gene expressions, this episode is a unique opportunity to gain insights. Dr. Civelek provides an in-depth exploration of his research in systems genetics aimed at understanding cardiometabolic diseases.
