Dr. Hardiman has a broad background in genomics, genomics technologies, pharmacogenomics, molecular biology and bioinformatics. My research over the past 20 years in biotech and academic settings has employed functional and comparative genomics and systems biology approaches to uncover genetic targets in the context of inflammation, cancer, diabetes, cardiac disease, cystic fibrosis and HIV infection. My research program broadly encompasses three areas: gene environment interactions in the context of endocrine disruption (using marine models and novel genomics tools), cystic fibrosis trans-membrane (CFTR) gene modifiers and environment, systems biology tool development for analysis of big data analysis such as microarray data and high-throughput sequencing (HTS) data.
Dr. Hardiman serves as Scientific Director of the Center for Genomics Medicine Bioinformatics Shared Resource. The MUSC Bioinformatics Core (MBC) provides state of the art bioinformatics analysis for genomic and epigenomic assays and supports the research goals of MUSC investigators. A range of bioinformatics services that have proven to be transformative in enabling investigators to advance disease-related research goals are offered. An emphasis will be placed on strengthening local bioinformatics resources, leveraging state resources (including the high-performance Palmetto computing (HPC) resource at Clemson University), and reducing barriers to utilization of bioinformatics tools by the MUSC community.
