Bradley Aouizerat, PhD
Professor of Physiological Nursing
Dr. Aouizerat’s research focuses on the discovery and characterization of genetic and epigenetic determinants of common symptoms experienced in chronic diseases. Common symptoms include pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, and depressive symptoms. Chronic diseases currently under investigation include cancer and HIV. Latent variable analyses of both cross-sectional and longitudinal measurements are employed to identify novel phenotypic subgroups for study. The role of pharmacogenomics in the treatment of chronic disease and risk for common symptoms is also a research focus.
