Claudia Gonzaga-Jauregui did her undergraduate studies in Genomic Sciences at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). She obtained her PhD in Molecular and Human Genetics from Baylor College of Medicine, where she contributed to large population genomic studies such as HapMap 3 and pioneered the analyses of genomic sequencing data for the identification of novel disease genes and molecular diagnoses for genetic disorders. Her research focuses on the investigation of human pathogenic and polymorphic genomic variation that contribute to human traits and diseases. She leverages family-based analyses of rare and common genetic disorders to identify causative variants and better understand disease mechanisms and pathophysiology, with a special focus on neurodevelopmental disorders. Additionally, she studies population genomic data to explore the burden of Mendelian disease and identify alleles of medical relevance to enable the implementation of precision health.
