William Bone

It's me!

I'm a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Pennsylvania in the Genomics and Computational Biology Graduate Group co-advised by Dr. Marylyn Ritchie and Dr. Benjamin Voight. My graduate work has focuesed on studying the pleiotropy of between cardiometabolic traits and complex diseases using multi-trait GWAS and colocalization analysis to identify novel therapeutic targets.

I have been working in the field of genomics for the last 10 years. Throughout my career I have worked to use genomics data to improve healthcare. I have worked on many different kinds of human genetic disease projects. I started my career working to use genomics data to find diagnoses for patients with rare genetic diseases. Currently my projects focus on understanding the contribution of genetics to common complex diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and coronary artery disease.
