Additional information

The central theme in 2023 will address the challenges of turning findings from the complex polygenetic landscape of mental illnesses into biology that will inform therapeutic discovery and the identification of biomarkers.  It's clear that new technologies, analytic techniques and models of disease are needed that can accommodate the polygenic background influences on even penetrant disease alleles before we can hope to gain greater understanding of pathological mechanisms.
