Dr Yevheniya Sharhorodska

Fellowship for external academics

This Fellowship brings together knowledge of women’s reproductive health with expertise in advanced data analysis. Yevheniya Sharhorodska will collaborate with Dr Kaakinen and her group, the Surrey Section of Statistical Multi-Omics, to investigate the relationship between recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its components, including obesity, high blood pressure and increased lipid levels. Building on previously collected data and methods developed by Dr Kaakinen and colleagues for studying the shared genetics of multiple traits, a multi-phenotype statistical analysis will be conducted, the results of which will be presented at two important upcoming human genetics conferences.
