From genes to brains to treatments: psychiatric drug development in the genomic era

Genomic studies have identified hundreds of loci that alter risk for psychiatric disorders. The challenge now is to use this information to better understand their biological basis and to drive therapeutic advances. I will discuss how I have used a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to understand links between genes and neurobiological processes, and how we can use this information to guide the development of new drug therapies.
