GianPiero Cavalleri

Principal Investigator
GianPiero is an Associate Professor of Human Genetics  in the Department of Molecular & Cellular Therapeutics, RCSI. Dr. Cavalleri’s research programme at RCSI focuses on developing methods to understand the genetic component to complex traits in humans, in particular those related to the development and treatment of sporadic forms of epilepsy. He is also involved in a variety of additional projects that use the latest genetic techniques, to help inform donor-recipient matches to improve outcome of organ transplantation, and to understand how our genes contribute to cardiovascular disease. Dr. Cavalleri recently initiated a project seeking to understand how evolution in the high altitude environment of the Himalaya has shaped the genomes of indigenous individuals of the region.
