Functional Neurogenomics Lab



Exploring the genetic mechanisms of regulome in neuropsychiatric diseases


The Functional Neurogenomics Lab studies the genetic mechanisms through which risk genetic variants increase vulnerability for neuropsychiatric diseases, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and Alzheimer’s disease.

Our lab has developed approaches to map the open chromatin regions and other epigenetic markers in specific cell types collected from human brain tissue. We integrate these annotations with large-scale genomic and transcriptomic data, using a combination of innovative biostatistical approaches, that aims to prioritize genes and genetic variants for  association with these diseases.

The Functional Neurogenomics Lab is part of the Psychiatric Genomics Division, the Friedman Brain Institute and the Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology
