Behrooz Z. Alizadeh
Dr. Behrooz Z. Alizadeh is an MD, and specialist in genetic epidemiology who obtained his MD from TUMS Tehran (1997), graduated in MSc (2001) and DSc (2002) degree from NIHES, Rotterdam, his Ph.D. from EMC-EU, Rotterdam (2005), and completed his postdoctoral fellowship in functional ImmunoGenomics at UMC Utrecht (2007). Since 2009, he is a staff member of the department of epidemiology acting as the head of the Unit of personalized medicine (2016) and is a member of the board of several research and/or educational programs and committees at UMCG Groningen, at METC UMCG (2012), and scientific international institutions. He holds visiting professor positions at several universities and is leading several (inter)national research projects (eg. MinldLines, GROUP, RadioGenomics, ARAS, CHARGE). During the 17 years of his professional scientific career, he published >200 publications of which the majority are in the top 10% of high-impact peer-reviewed journals. He is the principal investigator of educational institutes (eg. GUIDE, SHARE, GSMS, CPE) in the Netherlands. He has (co)supervised 25 PhDs fellows and postdocs.
His current research is focused on the devising, modeling, but also clinical, and societal implementation of personalized medicine in cancer and psychosis. To this end, his research group utilizes a systematic approach that integrates heterogeneous cohorts and real-world multi-dimensional data from various diseases. His approach contains advanced methodologies, data analytics, and genetic epidemiological techniques, including multi-dimensional reduction, growth curve trajectory modeling, mixed model analyses, and recently comparative machine learning techniques, to analyze and infer multi-level genetic, clinical (treatment), and societal data, aiming to predict patients’ long-term outcomes and response to therapies and interventions efficiently and accurately. In his view, personalized medicine is a health care process or even a societal program, rather than a research outcome!

I am a Lecturer in Nutrigenetics and Cardiovascular Health with more than 10 years’ experience in health data science, focusing on cardiovascular disease, blood lipid traits, metabolic traits and their inheritable and environmental risk factors.
After my PhD in Nutrigenetics, I joined the Wellcome Sanger Institute, as a post-doctoral researcher in the group of genetics of complex traits in humans, where I focused on genetic and gene-diet interaction analysis in cardiovascular and cardiometabolic diseases. I was involved in several consortium-led projects and co-authored several high profile publications. In 2013 I joined the Clinical Pharmacology Department, in the William Harvey Institute of Queen Mary University of London, as a senior statistical geneticist and developed sophisticated analytical pipelines for analysing large-scale genetic data, including the UK Biobank, for the investigation of coronary artery disease, blood lipids, blood pressure and anthropometric traits. I co-authored over 50 papers, including 2 publications in Nature Genetics, as a starred first author, on the genetic architecture of coronary artery disease. I have also been actively involved in the Nutrition working group within the CHARGE consortium, investigating gene-by-diet interactions in cardiometabolic traits.
In 2019 I was appointed a Lecturer in Nutrigenetics and Cardiovascular Health at William Harvey Institute and have been leading and co-leading projects relating to genetic architecture, prediction and causality of cardiovascular-related diseases in multi-ethnic populations. My research interests are focused on risk prediction for complex cardiometabolic traits, including the genetic predisposition and the lifestyle/diet/environment interplay. I am undertaking research on elucidating disease-related mechanisms in multi-ethnic cohorts and developing innovative therapeutic strategies, to alleviate or at least modulate the impact of environment on health. I have also engaged in the genetic COVID-19 research.
My work is reflected in > 100 peer-reviewed publications.

My research interests and experience include the study of beta cell loss in type 1 diabetes, use of biomarkers, genetics and development of the type 1 diabetes genetic risk score (T1D GRS).
During my Diabetes UK funded PhD in Exeter, I used a sensitive method of assessing beta cell function to demonstrate that most people with long duration T1D have residual beta cell function. This first analysis proved that very low concentration C-peptide in T1D represented functional beta cells and a subsequent population based assessment of endogenous insulin (UNITED) has allowed us to identify rare people with T1D with high levels of persistent beta cell function many years from diagnosis. The work has led to a $1.1m JDRF strategic research agreement (Dr Oram is Co-PI with 4 others) to study immune, genetic and clinical associations of preserved endogenous insulin in type 1 diabetes. Importantly we developed simple blood and urine methods to assess C-peptide that could easily be used to screen other cohorts.
I have continued to show a career trajectory of original thinking with development of the type 1 diabetes genetic risk score (T1D GRS) as a method to easily and cheaply measure genetic risk as a single continuous variable that is composed of multiple measures of GWAS SNPs. A key finding in our original paper was that genetic risk can be combined with other factors to better classify diabetes. This work has rapidly been received with great enthusiasm with papers and accompanying editorials already published in Diabetes, Diabetes Care (2016, 2018, 2019, in press), the Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology (2018), Plos Medicine (2018) and Nature Medicine (2020). This innovative approach of being able to easily and cheaply tag HLA and non-HLA risk has high translational impact as both a research tool to investigate and better understand the biology of T1D and as a future diagnostic test to predict T1D and discriminate T1D from T2D and MODY.
I have continued to translate genetic risk scores for clinical use by developing a commercial biochip with a private company (Randox) with licensing agreement and launch of the first generation T1D GRS biochip in spring 2023.

Contributions to Science
Most people with longstanding type 1 diabetes are insulin microsecretors
Background: T1D was thought to progress to absolute insulin deficiency
Central Finding: The majority of people with even long duration T1D have some residual beta cell function. During my PhD I proved, with 2 studies, that most people with T1D have measureable serum and urine C-peptide and that levels increment after a meal. This demonstrated that most people with T1D have a few remaining functional beta cells. This raises the ongoing question of whether longstanding beta cell function in T1D represents persistent beta cells that have evaded immune attack, or alternatively represents a consistent replenishment of beta cells that are constantly being regenerated and destroyed.
Influence: These studies had a dramatic impact on the field, and raised that question of the clinical and scientific relevance of persistent beta cell function. They have changed the way we study beta cell function in Type 1 diabetes. The work has led to a $1.1m JDRF strategic research agreement (Dr Oram is Co-PI with 4 others) to study immune, genetic and clinical associations of preserved endogenous insulin in type 1 diabetes. Importantly we have developed simple blood and urine methods to assess C-peptide that could easily be used to screen other cohorts. UNITED has allowed us to develop reference ranges for blood and urine C-peptide that can be used to define clinical outliers by their residual C-peptide and will enable us to screen other large groups of patients.

A Type 1 Diabetes Genetic Risk Score (T1D GRS) can aid discrimination between type 1 and type 2 Diabetes, prediction of type 1 diabetes and investigation of etiology.
Background: It is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish between type 1 and type 2 diabetes, particularly because of the increasing amount of obesity in young people. It is important to get the right diagnosis because correct treatment is dependent on this (i.e. Type 1 patients require insulin injections whereas Type 2 diabetes patients are often best treated with tablets or diet). Additionally the autoimmune process in type 1 diabetes commonly starts many years before clinical presentation, and methods that use genetic risk and additional markers to identify people before diagnosis may enable early disease modifying intervention.
Central Finding: A Type 1 diabetes genetic risk score provides a simple, cheap and accurate addition to discriminating between Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and can be used for prediction of type 1 diabetes.
Influence: This is an important addition to correctly classifying diabetes subtype. This work also led to subsequent work that has demonstrated T1D-GRS can also discriminate Type 1 diabetes from monogenic diabetes,
Specific Role: I conceived the first key study, planned and performed analysis, and wrote the first paper with Mike Weedon. I have built on this work with ongoing funding to study rare groups identified by

Repeated measures such as home UCPCR and/or Beta2score are a novel method to assess Islet transplant function
Background: Islet and pancreas transplant function is difficult to objectively measure and so it is hard to track when and why they are failing.
Central Finding: A simple combined formula of fasting glucose, fasting C-peptide, HbA1c and insulin dose is a cheap simple, repeatable measure of beta cell function.
Influence: This will change the way that islet transplants are monitored and may also improve monitoring post immunotherapy in intervention trails and in natural history studies of type 1 diabetes.
Specific role: I designed and undertook a repeated home UCPCR study in UK islet transplant recipients. I jointly performed analysis in Beta2score study.

C. Contributions to Science
Research Contributions: Development of methodologies in genetic epidemiology
Finding gene-gene and gene-environment interactions is a challenge in genetic epidemiology and my group
developed a statistical method to identify such interactions (Paré et al. PLoS Gen 2010; Deng et al. Eur J Hum
Gen 2014). We also developed an approach to test regional genetic associations (Paré et al. PLoS Gen 2015)
that we extended to estimate polygenic regional variance from summary statistics (Paré et al. Sci Rep 2016) and
machine-learning methods to determine polygenic risk scores (Paré et al. Sci Rep 2017). Such methods facilitated
the prediction of EOCAD and the AHA named our study one of 2018’s top 10 most influential advancements in
heart and stroke research (Theriault et al. Circ Genom Precis Med 2018; please see: https://tinyurl.com/qreswc3).
We pioneered the use of Mendelian randomization (MR) to show that diabetes is causally involved in CAD (Ross
et al. EHJ 2015), and to identify biomarkers and drug targets for ischemic stroke (Chong et al. Circ 2019),
biomarkers linking metabolically-favorable adiposity with type 2 diabetes risk (Pigeyre et al. Diabetes Care 42
2019), and show that HER2 is a causal mediator of the protective effect of ACE inhibitors on kidney function
(Sjaarda et al. JASN 2018). We also developed a reverse MR method to identify markers of CKD (Mohammadi-
Shemirani et al. Clin Chem 2019) and methods to explore relationships between genetic ancestry and biomarker
levels (Sjaarda et al. AJHG 2020).
Identification of genetic determinants of cardiovascular diseases
We identified genetic determinants of lipoprotein concentrations (Paré et al. AJHG 2007; Paré et al. Circ 2019),
glucose metabolism (Paré et al. PLoS Gen 2008), homocysteine concentrations (Paré et al. Circ Gen 2009), and
markers of inflammation (Paré et al. PLoS Gen 2011). I belonged to studies detailing the role of genetics in CVDs
(Ridker et al. Circ Gen 2009; Paynter et al. JAMA 2010) and consortia discovering loci associated with CAD (Zhao
et al. Nat Genet 2017; Patel et al. Circ Genom Precis Med 2019), stroke (MEGASTROKE, Nat Commun 2018;
ISGC, Neurology 2019; Nat Genet 2018; Lancet Neurol 2016), and atrial fibrillation (Roselli et al. Nat Genet 2018).
More recently we have described the role of ACE2 in CVD (Lancet 2020).
Pharmacogenetics of antiplatelet and anticoagulant agents
Clopidogrel is used to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Individuals with a CYP2C19 loss-of-function (LOF)
allele have an attenuated benefit from clopidogrel, leading to an FDA warning. Our studies of acute coronary
syndrome and atrial fibrillation showed that the negative effects of LOF alleles do not apply to all
populations. Rather, the CYP2C19 gain-of-function allele may be equally or more important than the LOF allele
in specific populations (Paré et al. N Engl J Med 2010; Paré et al. Circ Gen 2012). We also described a
pharmacogenetic association between CES1 and bleed risk with the anticoagulant, dabigatran (Paré et al. Circ
2013), and described an association between a COX-2 variant and its effect on aspirin (Ross et al. EHJ 2014).
