Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
George’s research focuses on investigating causal molecular pathways involved in cardio-metabolic diseases through analysis of large-scale genomic and other molecular data in human populations. During his doctoral and postdoctoral work at Lund University, he studied interactions between genetic and environmental factors involved in type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease and causal connections between cardio-metabolic biomarkers and cardio-metabolic diseases using common genetic variation. He completed his Ph.D. at Lund University under the supervision of Prof. Marju Orho-Melander and his M.D. at the American University of Beirut.
