Pilot & Feasibility Funding Awarded to Dr. Hassan Dashti

Hassan Dashti, PhD, RD, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Genomic Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital has received pilot and feasibility funding for his project “Phenome-wide interactions between obesity genetic risk and lifestyle traits in an electronic health record biobank”. This study will test the hypothesis that phenomewide interaction scans of electronic health record biobanks will provide insights into multiple clinical phenotypes where targeting obesogenic lifestyle behaviors may attenuate obesity genetic risk. Congratulations to Dr. Dashti on his pilot award.
