Associate Director, Center for Genome Technology, John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics

Dr. Griswold is a Research Assistant Professor in the Dr. John T. MacDonald Department of Human Genetics at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and in the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics (HIHG). He is the Associate Director of the Center for Genome Technology and leader of the Statistical and Bioinformatics Consulting Core (SBCC). His background is in molecular genetics with a recent focus in bioinformatics applications including whole genome sequencing, transcriptomics, and epigenomics. His current work focuses on utilizing sequencing methodologies and bioinformatics approaches to identify genomic signatures of complex disease phenotypes ranging from autism, to Alzheimer disease, to chronic sports medicine related conditions such as osteoarthritis.
