Mark J Daly, PhD

Chief

In addition to his work with ATGU, Mark is an Associate Professor at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School and an Associate Member of the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, where he directs computational biology for the Medical and Population Genetics Program. His lab focuses on computational approaches to understanding the genetics of disease with a strategy of integrating powerful techniques from human and mouse genetics. The lab has extensive experience in linkage and association analysis and is now primarily focused on the creation of haplotype maps in humans and mice, the development of methods for design and interpretation of association studies using these maps, and the specific application of these approaches in major common disease areas such as diabetes, inflammatory/autoimmune and neuropsychiatric disease.
