Dr Karoline Kuchenbaecker

Statistical Geneticist


This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.

My research focusses on understanding the genetic background of common diseases by identifying susceptibility variants, investigating the genetic architecture and predicting risk.

I have been working in Genetic Epidemiology of breast and ovarian cancer as well as of cardiovascular disease. Through my research I would like to contribute to advancing our understanding of the aetiology of common diseases and improve risk prediction. I am interested in exploring the genetic architecture of complex traits using data from genome-wide association and whole-genome sequencing studies. My expertise also comprises discovery of susceptibility variants, fine-mapping, Mendelian Randomisation and risk prediction.
In the Analytical Genomics group I am involved in the UKHLS and the HELIC studies.
