Psychiatric Genetics

One of our main interests is in understanding genetic mechanisms underlying single psychiatric traits as well as co-morbidities between multiple traits. Our current research projects revolve around schizophrenia, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), mental retardation, autism, RETT syndrome, depression and dementia.

CTGlab participates in the international Psychiatric Genomics Consortium that aims to identify underlying genetic mechanisms of multiple psychiatric disorders.
