Head of the Section of Statistical Multiomics at the University of Surrey (Great Britain)

General information

The research work of the scientist has been aimed at the improvement of the understanding of the foundations of multifactorial human diseases. To this end, key methodological and statistical problems related to the adequate analysis of omics data and the use of results to solve specific scientific problems have been studied. In recent years, Prof. Prokopenko's interests have spread to the research of comorbid diseases and the development of methodologies for the research of such effects in multiscale sets of multiomics data. A special attention is paid to the determination of population-specific risks of comorbid diseases in accordance with the development of a method, the implementation of software and the application to specific ethnic groups.
