My research in a nutshell

I am the research coordinator of the CORtisol NETwork (CORNET) consortium which was established to identify genetic variants associated with plasma cortisol. Genetic variants associated with plasma cortisol can then used in Mendelian Randomisation analyses to investigate the causal association of hypercortisolism with cardiovascular disease and features of metabolic syndrome.
