Dara Torgerson, PhD

Associate Professor, Department of Epidemiology & Biostatistics

Dr. Torgerson’s research is focused on integrative genomic and metabolomic studies of complex disease, including asthma and respiratory outcomes of preterm infants, and pharmacogenomics. Her group develops computational strategies for the analysis of multi-omics data in genetically structured and underrepresented populations in order to address clinically relevant hypotheses. She works in close partnership with community members, basic and clinical scientists to promote multi-disciplinary efforts in genomics and precision medicine.
