Judith Zaugg is a Principal Investigator at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL, Germany). Her research is focused on understanding the molecular basis of complex traits by integrating genome-wide molecular phenotype data (DNA interactions, RNA, proteins and metabolites). Her group develops multi-omics data integration approaches, and applies them to biological questions ranging from genetic control of chromatin architecture to ageing and drug response.
Judith studied Chemical Biology at ETH Zurich (Switzerland), obtained her PhD from Cambridge University (UK) and EMBL-EBI and then went to do a postdoc at Stanford University (US) where she was investigating the genetic basis of regulatory variation across human individuals. Since 2014 she is leading a computational research group at EMBL Heidelberg.
