We are a biomedical research group in the Department of Pediatrics in the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego in La Jolla CA. We are also members of the UCSD Pediatric Diabetes Research Center, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology program, Biomedical Sciences program, Institute for Diabetes and Metabolic Health, and Institute for Genomic Medicine.

Our research combines genetics and single cell genomics to define gene regulatory programs in human cell types and determine the role of cell type-specific regulatory variants in risk of complex disease, in particular type 1 diabetes.
