The Emmer Lab is a highly collaborative and multidisciplinary group of scientists who use modern genomic tools to functionally interrogate the molecular basis of health of and disease. Areas of focus include atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, lipoprotein metabolism, and acute lung injury and regeneration. The Emmer Lab uses a wide variety of experimental approaches with dedicated expertise in high-throughput CRISPR screening, massively parallel reporter assays, and deep mutational scanning.
