Offer description:

The  research focuses on analyzing the genetic basis of asthma, studying the genetic factors involved in exacerbations and response to treatment, combining genome-wide association studies, admixture mapping and massive sequencing. In recent years, the gropu leader  has led the pharmacogenomics analyzes of the Pharmacogenomics in Childhood Asthma (PiCA) consortium, funded by a project as PI of the Carlos III Health Institute (AC150015) within the ERA-Net EraCoSysMed Horizon 2020. In addition, it has established a new cohort to evaluate the role of human genome and microbiome variation in asthma exacerbations, funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICIN SAF2017-83417-R). Recently he has expanded his line of research to additional omics approaches (transcriptomics and epigenomics), through a MICIN project (PID2020-116274RB-I00).
