Recent Genomic Discoveries in Psychiatry: Implications for Diagnosis and Treatment

Stephen V. Faraone, PhD, Director, Medical Genetics Research, Professor of Psychiatry and of Neuroscience & Physiology, Director Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Research, SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY and Stephen J. Glatt, PhD, Director, Psychiatric Genetic Epidemiology & Neurobiology Laboratory (PsychGENe Lab), Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry and of Neurosicience & Physiology, Associate Director, Medical Genetics Research Center (MGRC), SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY

This presentation will review recent genomic discoveries in psychiatry with a particular focus on their implications for diagnosis and treatment. Methods such as sequencing, genome-wide association scanning, and transcriptomic analysis will be introduced, along with the results from such studies of developmental disorders such as ADHD and autism as well as major psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The process and pragmatics of translating such discoveries into useful diagnostic and prognostic tools for clinical practice will also be discussed.

Drs. Faraone & Glatt do not have financial relationships with commercial interests.
