Eleonora Porcu from the Reymond lab received the “Lodewijk Sandkuijl” award for best presentation by a young investigator in the field of complex disease genetics and statistical genetics at the European Society of Human Genetics congress that was held June 16-19, 2018 in Milan, Italy and regrouped more than 3700 human geneticists. She described a multi-instrument and multi-exposure Mendelian randomization method she established with Zoltan Kutalik from the IUMSP (Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine), Lausanne.
Congratulations to her!
Mendelian randomization combining GWAS and eQTL data reveals new loci, extensive pleiotropy and genetic determinants of complex and clinical traits:
