Reasearcher Bio
Currently pursuing PhD in Drosophila development. Used genome-wide approaches (ChIP-chip/seq and miRNA-seq) as well as traditional genetic tools.

I have a long standing interest in Neuroscience.
I am looking forward to contribute to the field of Schizophrenia by transferring my knowledge and skill set to look at epigenetic changes affecting etiology of this disorder.
If resources were not limited, what research projects would you pursue?
Epigentic mechanisms underlying Schizophrenia and related mental disorders
What is your leading hypothesis?
In monozygotic twins when one sibling is Schizophrenic the chances of other sibling to have schizophrenia are only about 50% (genetic) and the remaining contribution is usually grouped as environmental factors (epigenetic).

It's possible that upbringing of individuals play a major role in etiology of Schizophrenia.
