Dr. Hindorff is an epidemiologist and program director in the Division of Genomic Medicine at NHGRI. She received her M.P.H. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Washington, where her research focused on cardiovascular genetic epidemiology and motivating factors for using genetic tests in clinical care. At NHGRI, Dr. Hindorff is the project scientist for the Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research (CSER) program, a consortium which is examining the methods development needed to integrate sequencing into the clinic and the ethical, legal and psychosocial research required to responsibly apply personal genomic sequence data to medical care.
Dr. Hindorff is also the project scientist for the Population Architecture using Genomics and Epidemiology (PAGE) program, a cooperative agreement to better characterize promising genetic variants from genome-wide association studies in large and well-phenotyped population-based cohorts. She is also the NHGRI lead for the online NHGRI Genome-wide Association Study catalog. Her research interests include biomedical informatics, the integration of genetic tests into clinical care and practical issues related to large epidemiological studies.
