The Knowles laboratory employs genomic methods to study the molecular mechanisms that mediate cardiovascular disease risk and pathophysiology, especially insulin resistance. For insulin resistance genes identified through GWAS, we identify mechanisms of action. We use advanced genetic and genomic approaches - like CRISPR screens, scRNA-seq, and colocalization -  in human cellular and mouse models . The ultimate goal is translation of these findings to the clinic.
