Research Projects

Resilience Genes Moderating Risk for Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, and Major Depression.

  • PI: Hess
  • This project aims to identify genes that protect people at elevated risk for major mental illness, and understand the role of resilience genes on cognition and brain structure

Integrating Genetic, Neuroimaging, Transcriptomic, and Clinical Risk Factors as Multivariate Predictors of Cognitive Deterioration in Alzheimer's Disease

  • PI: Hess
  • This Project's goal is to identify risk factors for cognitive deterioration in Dementia using the Brain Gene Expression and Network Imputation Engine (BrainGENIE)
