Research interests

I am currently interested on the study of the genetic basis of obesity, particularly the following lines:

  • Identify new genetic variants associated with the susceptibility risk to develop an obese phenotype.
  • Identify mutations in the MC4R and LEPR genes associated with monogenic obesity.
  • Examine the methylation levels of several CpG sites.

Overall, I am interested in identifying a genetic profile to predict the obesity susceptibility risk.
