Clinical Research Data Specialist I - McGovern Lab - Inflammatory Bowel and Immunobiology Research Institute (IBIRI)
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
Location: Los Angeles, California
Internal Number: HRC0882970
Everyone's unique health journey is informed by data. Join us as we translate today's discoveries into tomorrow's medicine.
Cedars-Sinai is home to some of the most advanced biomedical research and training programs in the world, which attracts renowned physician-scientists seeking an unparalleled environment for fostering invention and teamwork.
The McGovern Laboratory studies the effects of genetic variation in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Also called the Translational Genomics Group (TGG), the McGovern Lab is focused on identifying genetic variants associated with both Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and then investigating their functional effects and also their role in determining disease behavior and natural history, including response to therapy. The McGovern Lab also investigates the role of the microbiome in IBD and particularly the relationship between genetic variation in the host (human) and microbiome-related changes. Work in the McGovern Laboratory includes significant statistical and computational biology components, and the lab is developing novel methods for integrating multi-omic datasets together with clinical metadata.
