Dr Renteria’s work lies at the intersection of genetics and neuroscience. Miguel applies computational and statistical methods to understand the basis of complex human traits and diseases. In particular, we leverage large datasets with genomic and neuroimaging data to perform genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and post-GWAS analyses.
Current research interests cover a wide range of predominantly age-related or sleep-related conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, dementia, cataracts, sleep apnoea, snoring, insomnia, chronic pain, major depression, self-harm, and suicidal behaviour.
