Public Lecture : Raine Visiting Professor Lecture: The TwinsUK Cohort: an international biomedical resource Other events...
The TwinsUK Cohort is one of the most phenotyped and genotyped cohorts in the world. The cohort is a major international bioresource with much data openly. Professor Chris Hammond, who leads the eye studies at St Thomas’ Hospital, King’s College London where the cohort is based, will illustrate the successes and challenges of identifying genes and pathways involved in complex traits using these modern “omics” technologies. He will discuss his work on Glaucoma, using data from the TwinsUK resource. Glaucoma, the most common untreatable cause of blindness in the world, is an optic neuropathy which affects 10% of the population over the age of 80, and recent genetic studies have identified important pathways in optic nerve susceptibility to damage by raised intraocular pressure.
