    Special Interests

    Research Interests

    As the lead Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) scientist for the Integrated Center for Genes, Environment and Health at National Jewish Health, Dr. Farias-Hesson is especially interested in using and implementing cutting-edge genomic technologies to understand the genetics of complex lung and immune-related conditions. She has been supporting different groups, facilitating the use of new technologies in their research, developing assays, interpreting, and validating NGS findings. Collaborative projects with many investigators at National Jewish Health and the University of Colorado Denver are using powerful genomic tools to investigate pulmonary cell biology, mycobacterium tuberculosis and samples from humans with asthma and other diseases.
