1/7 Psychiatric Genomics Consortium: Finding actionable variation
Sub PI: Montalvo-Ortiz, Janitza L.
NIH/NIMH 3U01MH109528-04S1
This a subaward of the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium (PGC). PGC is one of the most innovative experiments in the history of psychiatry. We have unified much of psychiatric genomics to enable rapid progress in discovering the genetic basis of psychiatric disorders. We propose new aims to identify “actionable” variation, findings with clear etiological, clinical, nosological, therapeutic, and biological significance.
