Robert MaierS Hong Lee

Abstract

Genetic risk prediction has several potential applications in medical research and clinical practice and could be used, for example, to stratify a heterogeneous population of patients by their predicted genetic risk. However, for polygenic traits, such as psychiatric disorders, the accu...read more

Risk for Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a complex disease and emerging studies have identified hundreds of genetic loci harbouring schizophrenia-associated variants. These variants can potentially increase the risk for developing Schizophrenia. Discover the latest research on Risk For Schizophrenia here.

Chromosomal Deletion

Chromosomal deletion includes the loss of a gene sequence of DNA. The location and the genes deleted determines the significance of this abnormality. There are many identified genetic disorders that are a result from chromosomal deletion including cri du chat and Prader-Willi syndrome. Discover the latest research on chromosomal deletions here.

Autism: Treatment Targets

The absence of effective treatments for autism are due to the high clinical and genetic heterogeneity between affected individuals, restricted knowledge of the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms, and the lack of reliable diagnostic biomarkers. Identification of more homogenous biological subgroups is therefore essential for the development of novel treatments based on the molecular mechanisms underpinning autism and autism spectrum disorders. Find the latest research on autism treatment targets here.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is characterized by manic and/or depressive episodes and associated with uncommon shifts in mood, activity levels, and energy. Discover the latest research this illness here.

Attention Disorders

Attention is involved in all cognitive activities, and attention disorders are reported in patients with various neurological diseases. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to attention disorders.

Autism

Autism spectrum disorder is associated with challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, and often accompanied by sensory sensitivities and medical issues. Here is the latest research.

Mania

Mania is a state of heightened affect, energy, and arousal that usually occurs in the context of bipolar disorder. Find the latest research on mania here.

Genome Annotation

Genome annotation is the process of identifying genes and assigning function to each gene in a genome sequence. It provides the means to elucidate biological function from sequence. Here is the latest research.

Depression

Depression, also known as major depressive disorder, is a medical condition associated with negative emotional, behavioural, and cognitive symptoms. Here is the latest research on this mood disorder.

Schizophrenia And Bipolar Disorder: Genome Sequencing

Genome-wide and high-throughput DNA sequencing in Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder can be used to identify genes and pathways that contribute to disease risk. Here is the latest research.

Immunogenetics of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease for which over 100 genetic risk loci have been identified. Genes involved in T cell receptor signalling, the JAK-STAT signalling pathway, and NF-kB signalling are enriched. Find the latest research on the immunogenetics of rheumatoid arthritis here.

Pervasive Developmental Disorder

Pervasive developmental disorders (PDDs) including autistic disorder, Asperger’s, and PDD not otherwise specified, are neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood onset. Discover the latest research on pervasive developmental disorders here.
