GiusTo Lab conducts genetic epidemiology research focusing on Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementia in admixed populations.

Research Overview

Ancestry is an understudied aspect of health disparities, as it may explain differences in frequency of diseases across populations. Genome-wide association studies have identified many risk and protective genetic loci, some of which are population-specific. These loci may impact disease risk and help explain the observed difference in disease burden among ethnic groups. Our projects are currently recruiting participants in North, Central and South America with a large variety of clinical, biomarker and OMICS data.
