Lajos A. Réthy (SNIP)

Dr. Lajos A. Réthy, senior scientific consultant and chief physician, Svábhegy¿ National Institute of Paediatrics, Budapest, Hungary (SNIP). Dr Rethy received his PhD at 2001 Medical School of the University of Pécs, Hungary.

Thereafter he was awarded a three-year grant for post doctoral research. His research is focused on large-scale population-based genomic studies and development of novel methods for DNA extraction, in collaboration with the Karolinska Institute and the Queen Silvia Children’s Hospital in Sweden. One such study dealt with polymorphism in an asthma related gene, GPRA, in 700 atopic patients. This has resulted in several publications in top allergy journals like J Allergy and Clin Immunology and Allergy. He has contributed to founding a national DNA bank and natione-wide screening programs.

His work also includes gender-related differences in human immune-responses. Dr. Réthy is also a senior lecturer of basic and nutritional immunology at the Dept of Nutritional Sciences /Faculty of Health Sciences of the University of Vienna, Austria since 2003 and a lecturer of nutritional genomics there since 2005.

He is also active participant of the functional genomics interest group of the European Academy of Allergology and Clinical Immunology as well as other national and international scientific societies. He is thereby in a unique position to develop and promote complexity science in medical research in central Eastern Europe. He is responsible for WP7.
