Sonia Shah

NHMRC Early Career Fellow


Research Focus

I was awarded a PhD at University College London in Jan 2014 on the discovery and application of genetic determinants of cardiovascular disease risk factors, with particular application in disease risk prediction and determining causality using Mendelian randomisation. My interests lie in using genetic, epigenetic and genomic data to better understand the underlying architecture of complex disease traits. In 2018, I was awarded an NHMRC Early Career Researcher fellowship at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, University of Queensland. I continues to collaborate on heart failure genomics projects as an senior research associate at UCL.
