Dr. Ron Do is an Assistant Professor in the Charles Bronfman Institute for Personalized Medicine, Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Do’s research focuses on the genetic and biological bases of complex traits and diseases with a particular emphasis on coronary artery disease (CAD) and related cardio-metabolic risk factors. Specifically, Dr. Do’s current research activities include: 1) inferring causal relationships between complex traits and diseases; 2) leveraging population genetic approaches to understand the genetic architecture of complex disease; 3) integrating genetic and functional data to understand the phenotypic links between complex traits and diseases; and recently, 4) conducting genetic studies to inform genomic medicine using electronic medical records linked to large-scale biobanks.
