Dissertation title: Adult height and the risk of chronic disease: investigating causality using genetic associations in two ethnically diverse populations
Supervisors: Professor Sarah Parish and Professor Robert Clarke
Andrew Linden joined the Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit in 2015. His DPhil research involves investigating the shared genetic and environmental architecture of adult height and chronic diseases in the China Kadoorie Biobank study and the UK Biobank study. This research aims to provide insight into the mechanisms underlying common diseases for the benefit of population health.
