The 23rd annual World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics was held October 16-20, 2015, in refreshingly chilly Toronto, Canada. Conference Chair James Kennedy of the University of Toronto welcomed 650 attendees from 42 countries to the sumptuous Fairmont Royal York Hotel and offered up a hearty stew of psychiatric genetics, which held its own against the potent distractions of various sporting events and a Canadian election. SRF reporter Michele Solis was in attendance to report on a wide variety of research, much of it a follow-up to the massive genomewide association studies conducted over the past of several years.
