Research Interest: 

Infrequent diseases of complex inheritance may affect as many as 20% of the population, yet they remain extremely difficult to study as conventional statistics have been developed for the study of large cohorts. Dr. Lussier and his team have developed a suite of analytical methods to study small cohorts and single subjects. These approaches are particularly well suited to elucidate the biomolecular mechanisms of disseminated coccidioidomycosis risk, an infrequent disease for which the complex genetic risks remains unsolved. In addition, solving one such disease provides the evidence for solving others.
