    Dr. Richard Lifton: "Genomic Approaches to Understand Hypertension and Other Common Diseases"

    Dr. Richard P. Lifton is Chair of the Department of Genetics at Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Yale University School of Medicine. His lab has used human genetics and genomics to identify key genes and pathways that underlie hypertension and other diseases including cardiovascular disease and cancer.  Most recently, he received the 2014 Breakthrough Prize in the Life Sciences.
