This project is a case-control study on Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), directed by Prof. Francesco Cucca, head of the Laboratorio  Immunologia at Sardegna Ricerche, professor of Human Genetics at the Universita' di Sassari e director of the IRGB- CNR in Cagliari. I have coordinated and carried out the statistical analyses of the project.

This study involves ~5000 volunteers (2000 T1D patients and 3000 Controls) recruited in Sardinia. It aims to find the genetic variants influencing the risk of developing T1D, a disease that is present in all Western countries but has very high incidence in Sardinia.

The project is ongoing, and includes the integration of >3500 whole-genome sequencing of Sardinians individuals
