American Museum of Natural History video features research of Burchard

A new video produced by the American Museum of Natural History features the work of Esteban Burchard, MD, MPH, and members of his laboratory.

“Genes and Health: Moving Beyond Race,” shows how Burchard’s lab is using differences in the ancestry of asthma patients to help find genetic variations contributing to the disorder, the most common chronic disease in children.

Burchard is a faculty member in the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, a joint department of the UCSF Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine.
