The Statistical and Genomic Epidemiology Laboratory (SGEL) is located in the School of Biomedical Sciences, Faculty of Health, at the Queensland University of Technology (Kelvin Grove Campus) under the direction of Professor Dale Nyholt. SGEL studies the role of genetics in the development and mechanism of human traits with the specific goal of identifying genetic risk factors, their biological consequences, and how they interact with environmental exposures to provide a deeper understanding of aetiology and discover new targets for drug therapy. SGEL also develops novel statistical and bioinformatics programs used by researchers worldwide.
