I am extremely grateful to BioUkraine for such a great opportunity to visit the Advanced Course on "Genetic Analysis of Population-based Association Studies" from Wellcome Genome Campus!
Due to the course, I have extended my knowledge in modern statistical approaches which could be used in my current studies of Ukrainians who suffer from cardiovascular disease and substance use disorders.
It was a fantastic week for me as I have met many talented researchers from the UK and some other countries.
Even informal conversations have given me a new point of view on how so-called "dry-lab" approaches should be used to obtain reliable results to do research with a real impact on precision medicine.
Now, I am planning to make a presentation and share the basics obtained from the course with my laboratory mates!
