To improve treatments for schizophrenia there is a need to better understand the biology impacted by genetic mutations conferring risk to the disorder. This project will aim to investigate the effects of high-risk genetic variants on synapses and their molecular constituents. We will make use of cell-specific RNA sequencing and large-scale patient genomic data to quantify these effects and predict biological vulnerability in the brain.
