Carles Hernández: Bioinformatics to the Service of Epidemiology

“My task as a researcher is to develop new tools and new methods to analyse and to understand the exposome”

Carles Hernández uses bioinformatics to develop new tools and methods to analyse the exposome, that is to say all the exposures to be encountered by humans from conception to death, within the framework of the HELIX Project. The results of this project will help us to better understand how various types of exposures combine to influence our risk of disease.
