Dr. Maryam Nasiri Aghdam serves as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mackay-Anholt Laboratory at Clemson University’s Center for Human Genetics (CHG), contributing to research on quantitative traits. She attained her PhD in 2024 from the University of Guadalajara, Mexico, specializing in Human Genetics. Her doctoral research focused on genome-wide mRNA splicing mechanisms and the functional prediction of isoform switch events in HPV-infected cells.

During her master’s studies, Dr. Nasiri concentrated on bioinformatic and clinical interpretation of familial cancers using whole exome sequencing data. She holds a genetic counseling certificate from the National Welfare Institution, Iran, and has actively participated in variant interpretation and the management of patients with rare genetic disorders across various clinics and hospitals.

In her current capacity, Dr. Nasiri explores the roles of gene regulation and structural variation in both common and rare diseases. She aims to develop robust models for genotype-phenotype prediction and employs systems genetics approaches in animal models to comprehend the genome-wide effects of genetic variants on molecular networks in human populations, thereby contributing significantly to the advancement of knowledge in human genetics and disease.
