Dr. Tin’s research focuses on increasing our understanding on the genetic and non-genetic susceptibility for chronic kidney disease (CKD) and related traits and to identify novel targets for prevention and treatment. Chronic diseases are consequences of genetic susceptibility and environmental exposure. Dr. Tin uses a multilevel approach that combines genomic information (DNA sequence variation, DNA methylation, and gene expression) with clinical and metabolomics information from population-based studies. This integrated approach can identify intermediary factors that are at the intersection of genetic susceptibility and environmental exposure and link the biological pathways in the pathogenesis of a disease. Increasing our understanding of these intermediary factors and biological pathways can reveal potential prevention and treatment targets.
