Associate Professor Dale Nyholt

Queensland University of Technology
Associate Professor Dale R Nyholt is a human geneticist expert in the statistical analysis of common complex traits. His expertise spans statistical genetic and genomic analysis, epidemiology, bioinformatics and biostatistics. His laboratory studies the role of genetics in the development and mechanism of human traits, with particular emphasis on migraine, with the specific goal of identifying genetic risk factors and detecting common genetic links with other disorders, including depression and endometriosis. The identification of such causal genetic factors and how they interact with environment exposures will provide a deeper understanding of the aetiology of migraine and our ability to prevent and treat attacks, and facilitate the discovery of novel pathways and thus identify new targets for drug therapy. His laboratory also develops novel bioinformatics programs used by researchers worldwide. You can find additional details on his QUT staff profile and Google Scholar webpage.
