Genetic Etiology of Abdominal Hernia Susceptibility

​The objective of this project is to investigate the genetic mechanisms that drive the development of abdominal hernias. This study has three major aims: 1) to investigate the shared and individual genetic risks of different types of abdominal hernia, 2) to examine the genetic risk factors underlying recurrence of hernias in individual patients, and 3) to investigate the genetic pathways and biological mechanisms through which abdominal hernia risk loci act.
