Genevieve Wojcik, Ph.D., MHS

Postdoc

 
Dr. Genevieve Wojcik is a genetic epidemiologist and statistical geneticist whose research focuses on method development for diverse populations, as well as elucidating genetic susceptibility to infectious disease and vaccine response and host-pathogen co-evolution. Her current research focuses on leveraging the complex ancestry of large-scale admixed populations, instead of overcoming it, for disease mapping.
