Brendan Swan - PhD in Neurogenetics

Brendan has had a fascination with human genetics from an early age. His PhD was undertaken at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. It involved developing a method for identifying mutations that cause neuro-developmental disorders, with emphasis placed on autism. He then investigated the causative mechanism of the mutations to gain insight to how these disorders arise.

To Brendan, SelfDecode represents the future of health and wellbeing. A tool that provides personalized information about an individual's genetic variations. A place for people to learn about how they can align their lifestyles with their genetic makeup in order to have longer, healthier, and happier lives.
