Career Summary

Biography

Elizabeth (Liz) Holliday is a genetic statistician with training in molecular bioscience (BSc Hons I - 2003), genetic epidemiology (PhD - 2008) and statistics (MSc - 2012). She is currently an Australian Heart Foundation/Stroke Foundation Future Leader Fellow (2014-2018). She joined the University of Newcastle in 2009 after completing doctoral studies at the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia.

Her primary research interest is large-scale genetic analyses of human traits, with a focus on ischaemic stroke and other vascular disorders.

Liz has published over 50 journal articles and several book chapters/sections. She has also received a number of competive grants and awards for her research.
