Murielle Bochud holds a diploma in medicine from the University of Geneva (Switzerland, 1994), an MD from the University of Lausanne (Switzerland, 2002) and a PhD in genetic epidemiology from Case University (2007, Cleveland, USA). She is professor, head of the division of chronic diseases at the University Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine in Lausanne, Switzerland. Her research focuses on the epidemiology of chronic disease and, particularly, the genetics of blood pressure, renal function and obesity, based on population and family based data. She participates in international genome-wide meta-analyses such as the Global BPGen, the ICBP, the CKDGen Consortia as well as projects aimed at deciphering the genetic determinants of infectious diseases. Her work is based on a multidisciplinary approach with epidemiologists, public health specialists, clinicians, geneticists, statisticians, bioinformaticians and molecular biologists. With the explosion of genomic discoveries on common complex traits, she is interested in developing the new field of public health genomics, which attempts to translate molecular findings into clinical and public health applications, and vice versa.
