The underlying genetics of psychosis and mood disorders will be the focus of the next Brain & Behavior Research Foundation monthly webinar on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 from 2 to 3 p.m. EST. Carrie E. Bearden, Ph.D., Associate Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences and Psychology at University of California, Los Angeles, will discuss her research on identifying genetic and biological vulnerability markers for mood disorders. She has been using converging methodologies to study clinical high-risk samples and highly penetrant ‘genetic subtypes’ of different mood disorders.
The free webinar is open to the public, who can register online at bbrfoundation.org/webinars. During the last 15 minutes of the webinar, Dr. Bearden will answer questions posed by participants.
This webinar is part of a monthly series in which Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., President & CEO of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, hosts presentations by leading mental health researchers who discuss and answer questions about the latest in new technologies, early intervention strategies and next-generation therapies for brain and behavior disorders and mental illness. Each webinar is live tweeted with the hashtag #brainchat. After the live event, recordings of the webinars are available on the Foundation’s website at: bbrfoundation.org/webinar.
