Event description
Explore the role your genes play in your mental health, cognition and mood at a special free Liggins Institute public lecture.

About this Event

Associate Professor Justin O’Sullivan, Research Fellow William Schierding and PhD students Evgeniia Golovina and Denis Nyaga will discuss how knowing what your genes do can guide the development of future personalised medicine for prevention and treatment of mental health conditions and type 1 diabetes.

Learn how new 3D gene-mapping technologies, pioneered by the Liggins Institute, are helping to understand how genetic variants linked to schizophrenia, severe anxiety, bipolar disorder, unipolar depression and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affect people.

Join us at this special free Liggins Institute Public Lecture for a fascinating exploration into this new frontier of research.
