M.Sc., Ph.D.

Ron completed his M.Sc. in Epidemiology at the University of British Columbia and Ph.D in Human Genetics at McGill University. During his Ph.D., he studied the effects of genetic variants on lipids and cardiovascular disease using a variety of approaches including fine-mapping, gene-environment interaction and meta-analysis methods in gene association studies. He is currently investigating the extent to which rare DNA sequence variants contribute to risk for early-onset myocardial infarction.
