2006-2010 Zoltán was a postdoctoral research assistant at the Department of Medical Genetics (University of Lausanne) and affiliated with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics. His main interest lies in developping statistical methods that connect large scale data sets (SNPs, gene expression, clinical phenotypes). In 2009 he spent three months as a visiting scientist at the Evolutionary Systems Biology Group, BRC researching into the genetic- and biochemical determinants of drug-drug interactions.
In 2011 Zoltán became junior lecturer (Maitre Assistant) at the Department of Medical Genetics. His research is focussed on Genome-wide Association Studies. His current group page can be found here.
