Psychiatric Disorders
We aim to bridge the gap between the genome and clinic in the field of neuropsychiatric disorder research by systematically mapping the physical and genetic interaction networks underlying these disorders.

Within the last few years, a large number of genes have been linked to psychiatric disorders, providing new opportunities for research.

As part of the collaborative Psychiatric Cell Map Initiative (PCMI) which was started in collaboration with Jeremy Willsey and Matt State at UCSF, we create cell maps that will provide a better understanding of the biology of these disorders, and identify therapeutic interventions. We are working with experts on a variety of disorders, including ADHD, Autism, Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Epilepsy, OCD, Schizophrenia and Tourette’s Syndrome.
