Dr. Edwin Oh is an expert in neurogenetics, whose primary research examines the genetic and structural variants that contribute to human health and disease. He studies genetic mutations to improve the cellular and molecular diagnosis of genetic diseases and to enable the development of therapeutic paradigms.
His current research program involves screening wastewater for the presence of the SARS-COV-2 virus (COVID-19), and sequencing the RNA of the virus to contribute to future vaccine development. He's also an expert in schizophrenia, autism, and addiction.
I can envision a possibility where we create the vaccine, but the virus has mutated to a point in some communities where that vaccine is less effective for people who’ve contracted a different strain.8 February 2021
