Christoph Preuss, Ph.D.

Research Scientist

 Understanding the complex genetic architecture of human disease traits.

The focus of my research has been on deciphering the complex genetic architecture of human disease traits and modeling complex trait interactions in animal models . As part of the MODEL-AD consortium, my role is to support the efforts in building precise mouse models for late-onset Alzheimer disease by prioritizing human genetic risk variants for the creation of novel mouse models.
