Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Rasmussen-Torvik is a genetic epidemiologist interested in genetic risk factors for common chronic diseases. She is involved in large-scale genetic studies designed to detect novel genetic risk factors for chronic diseases. Dr. Rasmussen-Torvik is also interested in translating the results of GWAS and sequencing studies into clinical care by identifying variants associated with treatment response. As part of this work, she is also interested in developing methods to communicate information about testing for common genetic risk factors to the public.
