He received his PhD in Computational and Systems Biology at Washington University in St. Louis under the supervision of Justin Fay. He is interested in statistical genetics of complex disease and evolutionary genetics of adaptation and pleiotropy. His current projects include development of statistical test for shared genetic effect between autoimmune disease GWAS and blood eQTL, genetic risk prediction of myocardial infarction, and genetic analysis of cardiovascular co-morbidity. ​ **[[sgchun@partners.org|Sung Chun]]** is an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an Associate Geneticist at Brigham and Women'​s Hospital.

 +**[[davidradke@fas.harvard.edu|David Radke]]** is a PhD student in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS) program at Harvard Medical School. He is interested broadly in human evolution and specifically in how genomic structural variants (such as CNVs and indels, among others) helped shape modern human uniqueness. He combines population genetics and comparative genomics to assess the role of structural variants in both modern human and archaic populations.

She is broadly interested in problems in evolutionary genetics, particularly those relating to adaptation and the evolutionary history of man. In the Sunyaev lab, her projects include detecting patterns of epistasis in fitness and other complex traits using next-generation sequencing data, and exploring the link between selection and the expression patterns of genes. ​

 **[[onuralp@broadinstitute.org|Onuralp Söylemez]]** is a postdoctoral research fellow. He obtained his PhD in biomedical sciences at Pompeu Fabra University, Spain. During his PhD, he studied the prevalence and role of allele interactions at the protein level in shaping fitness within natural populations and between species. His current research focuses on applying evolutionary and population genetics tools to gene and pathway discovery via diagnosis of patients with Mendelian disorders of unknown etiology. His primary research interests include the link between Mendelian disorders and multifactorial traits, statistical genetics of rare genetic diseases, and novel regulatory mechanisms of pleiotropy. **[[onuralp@broadinstitute.org|Onuralp Söylemez]]** is a postdoctoral research fellow.
