Peter M Visscher

Professor and Chair of Quantitative Genetics

Visscher's research focuses on understanding individual differences between people in traits that are important for health outcomes and aging. A better understanding of the genes that underlie variation in risk to diseases may lead to better treatments. The traits he studies include gene expression, gene methylation, height and body- mass-index, psychiatric disease and neurogenetic conditions. He recently published “Concepts, estimation and interpretation of SNP-based heritability.” Nature Genetics 49:1304, 2017.
