Blair Anderson, PhD
Academic Highlights More Information
Dr. Anderson obtained his Doctorate degree in Genetics and Genomics from Duke University and his Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry from Jamestown College.
As a UPGG (University Program in Genetics and Genomics) Graduate Student within CHDM until 2016, Dr. Anderson's research in our laboratory focused on in vivo modeling of complex human disease. Specifically, genes and/or variants that contribute to risk in Sickle Cell Disease Nephropathy patients, although his research extends to forms of chronic kidney disease. Working under the direction of Dr. Ashley-Koch, he investigated novel genes/variants that contribute to nephropathy risk through next-generation sequencing.
