Dr. Chauhan is a genetic epidemiologist with focus on identifying genes involved in age related neurological conditions. He uses both genome wide association studies (GWAS) and whole exome sequencing (WES) approaches to identify common and rare variants in genes leading to diseases. He has a background of molecular biology, statistics and bioinformatics.
He has been working for the last two and a half years as a post-doctoral research fellow in Prof. Stéphanie Debette’s team. The various projects that he has been involved in her lab are mentioned below:
› Genotype imputation in 3C-Dijon data using the latest 1000G imputation panel
› Performing large scale GWAS of multiple phenotypes
› Trans-ethnic meta-analysis of GWAS for stroke, brain infarcts and gray matter volume as part of collaboration with CHARGE consortium
› Whole exome sequencing analysis to identify genes for cerebral small vessel disease
