Professional Summary

Dr. Deka is a molecular population geneticist by training. His primary research interest is epidemiology and genetics of complex diseases. A major thrust of his laboratory is identification of susceptibility genes predisposed to common and complex diseases. He is leading NIH funded genome-wide association studies to identify genetic variants associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome. Dr. Deka’s other research interests are in the area of human genome diversity and evolutionary genetics. He has published over 140 peer-reviewed papers. Dr. Deka is the Director of an NIEHS funded training grant (T32) on Molecular Epidemiology of Children’s Environmental Health that trains pre-doctoral, post-doctoral and clinical fellows. The mission of this program is to educate and train next generation scientists in molecular epidemiology to conduct inter-disciplinary research relevant to pediatric environmental health. Dr. Deka was awarded the Gorjanovic-Krambergeri Award for 2010 by the Croatian Anthropological Society and Croatian Academy of Sciences for his work on population genetics in the Adriatic Islands. He is an elected Fellow of the Graduate School, University of Cincinnati. Dr. Deka was recipient of the Director’s 2010 Award for Excellence in Research, Department of Environmental Health, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
