Sina Rüeger receives Lodewijk Sandkuijl Award

The European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) held its yearly conference 21-24 May 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. Sina Rüeger (PhD student) received the Young Investigator Award for the best talk in statistical genetics (the Lodewijk Sandkuijl Award). She presented how summary statistics imputation can enhance approximate conditional analysis when combining different meta analysis results (e.g. SNP array and exome array results from Genetic Investigation of ANthropometric Traits). (Abstract title: “Summary statistic imputation method enables conditional analysis across meta-analysis studies: Application to GIANT height associations from exome-chip & HapMap”).
