Dr. Cox is a quantitative human geneticist whose research program focuses on the identification and characterization of genetic variation contributing to common human disease and related complex traits.
Nancy J. Cox earned a B.S. degree in biology from the University of Notre Dame in 1978, and a Ph.D. in human genetics from Yale in 1982. After conducting post-doctoral research at Washington University and the University of Pennsylvania, she joined the University of Chicago in 1987, where she was Professor of Medicine and Human Genetics and Chief of the Section of Genetic Medicine. Her research has been focused on the identification and characterization of genetic variation contributing to common human diseases and related complex traits. Her laboratory is currently working to integrate information on DNA variation with information on genome function for statistical analysis of genotype and sequence data on a wide variety of human phenotypes. Dr. Cox is part of the GTEx project, and through the PAAR project at the University of Chicago is part of the PGRN, and a member of the T2DGENES consortium. Her active research projects include investigations into pharmacogenomcs, diabetes and its complications, breast cancer, asthma, autism, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Tourette Syndrome, obsessive compulsive disorder, specific language impairment and stuttering. She was named as a Pritzker Scholar at the University of Chicago in 2012, won the Leadership Award from IGES in 2010, and was a co-winner of the Landon Award from the AACR in 2008, has been editor-in-chief of Genetic Epidemiology (2006-2011), on the editorial board for Diabetes and the American Journal of Human Genetics, a member of the Board of Directors for ASHG, and is member-at-large for the Biological Sciences Section at AAAS.

In 2000, in a finding that provided an enormous boost for scientists interested in either diabetes or genetics, a team led by Bell and Dr. Nancy Cox identified the major susceptibility gene for type 2 or non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) in Mexican-Americans.
Bell and Cox also conduct studies of permanent neonatal diabetes with Louis H. Philipson, MD, PhD; Drs.
