Karen Conneely, PhD is Associate Professor in the Department of Human Genetics at Emory University School of Medicine.


Dr. Conneely's research focuses on statistical methods for genetic association studies and large-scale studies of DNA methylation. She is currently involved in GWAS, candidate gene studies, and methylation studies involving psychiatric outcomes, environmental stressors, and aging. Through the development of novel techniques and adaptation of existing ones, her work seeks to identify biomarkers and variants involved in disease, and to explore the role of DNA methylation as a mediator between environment and phenotype.
