Dr. Hui-Qi Qu’s research interest includes: (1) genetic epidemiology and functional genomics of human common diseases (e.g. obesity, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes); (2) translational research and biomarker development. He was trained as a clinical doctor of internal medicine in China. From 2003 to 2010, he worked on the genetics of type 1 diabetes and neonatal diabetes by candidate-based approach and genome-wide association study (GWAS) at McGill University, Canada. His study resulted in the identification of novel type 1 diabetes (T1D) loci and a novel gene critical in pancreas development, and the elucidation of molecular mechanisms of diabetes. In 2010, he joined the University of Texas School of Public Health. Currently, he is working on the genetic epidemiology and functional genomics of metabolic syndrome in Mexican-American population. To translate basic research into clinical application, he is trying to develop novel biomarkers for the early diagnosis of metabolic syndrome and diabetes, and he is engaged in the pursuit of genetics-based personalized medicine.
