The Abul-Husn Laboratory

The Abul-Husn lab evaluates the impact of human genetic variation in large clinical care cohorts, and translates genomic research into clinical care for diverse populations.

Electronic Health Records and Genomics

We leverage large-scale genomic data and electronic health records to:

  • Evaluate the prevalence and clinical impact of human genetic variation
  • Elucidate novel genes and variants underlying human traits and disease states

These exciting avenues of research capitalize on the diversity of the BioMe Biobank to understand variant frequencies in different populations, as well as  clinical data BioMe participants to evaluate penetrance and phenotypic spectrums.

Genomic Screening in Diverse Populations

We return results for medically actionable genomic conditions to BioMe Biobank participants in order to:

  • Evaluate the clinical utility of population-based genomic screening
  • Scale the implementation of genomic medicine
