Q&A With Michael O'Donovan on Landmark Schizophrenia GWAS
Michael O'Donovan
The publication of the biggest genomewide association study in schizophrenia recently drew much attention (and some commentary at SRF). We followed up with lead author Michael O'Donovan to ask some questions about the ongoing Psychiatric Genome Consortium schizophrenia effort and how to follow up on the >100 associations with common variants already in hand. Read the interview and offer any comments or questions you have.
FREE Job and Study Ads on SRF Get Results
In addition to our news and commentary, Schizophrenia Research Forum offers free advertising of jobs in mental illness and neuroscience research and related fields, as well as announcements of research studies at academic and nonprofit institutions that are looking for study participants. The announcements reach about 4,000
newsletter recipients, but are seen by thousands more who visit our website (we host about 13,000 sessions per month). We have repeatedly heard from researchers that they found their job (or the perfect postdoc) or helped fill up their study by posting an ad on SRF.
Welcome to the Schizophrenia Research Forum!
