Chloé Sarnowski

Dr. Sarnowski completed her Ph.D. in statistical genetics in December 2015 in France. During her Ph.D. study, she focused on the integration of complex mechanisms in asthma association studies such as disease heterogeneity, epigenetics and gene-by-environment interactions.

Dr. Sarnowski has a multidisciplinary background. After high school, she studied biology for two years. Then, she attended a 2-year program in bioinformatics to get better insight into the methodologies and the available resources of this emerging field. She then enrolled in a public health Master program to learn epidemiology, statistics and genetics. She had the opportunity to carry out an internship in statistical genetics at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm) and she decided to pursue her research project through a 4-year Ph.D. program.

She is currently working as a postdoctoral fellow in statistical genetics in the Biostatistics department at the Boston University School of Public Health, supervised by Dr. Josée Dupuis. Her areas of research within the Framingham Heart Study (FHS) are genetics of glycemic traits (with Professors James Meigs & Josée Dupuis), reproductive ageing (with Professors Kathryn Lunetta & Joanne Murabito) and neurogenetics (with Professor Sudha Seshadri).
