  • Dr. Michael O. Woods, PhD

Appointments:

Associate Professor, Discipline of Genetics, Faculty of Medicine

Affiliations:

Memorial University of Newfoundland

Research Interests:

Genetic etiology of colorectal cancer; novel gene discovery; gene variant interpretation

My primary research interests involve identifying the causes of hereditary diseases affecting Newfoundlanders & Labradorians. In our lab we study families with inherited colorectal cancer, intracranial aneurysms, and eye disorders, primarily. Using next generation DNA sequencing, bioinformatics, and utilizing the strong family and clinical data we have gathered, we identify genes and mutations that affect families in our province. This data can then be used to inform clinical management of patients in NL, as well as those in other jurisdictions with similar genetic disease.
