The Translation Neurogenomics Group focuses on genetic association studies of mental health traits, including schizophrenia, substance use disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorders. By researching a wide variety of symptoms that are typical of patients with a particular psychiatric condition, we can use newly developed statistical methods to discover associations between the condition and genetic variants.
