Dr. Vladimir I. Vladimirov | Uncovering the Genetic and Molecular Underpinnings of Psychiatric Disorders

Nov 29, 2023 | biology, health and medicine

About this episode

Over the past decade or so, researchers have conducted several large-scale genetic studies employing hundreds of thousands of patients, to identify genetic variants associated with psychiatric disorders. However, very few studies have explored how these genetic variants impact molecular processes in the brain, leading to the development of various psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia, major depression, or alcohol addiction.
