Understanding Biological Risk with Psychiatric Genomics

The Psychiatric Genomics Lab is a computational lab housed in the Huntsman Mental Health Institute at the University of Utah. We work to map the genetic architecture of complex and severe outcomes like suicide, severe depression, and schizophrenia to enhance prevention and treatment efforts.

We currently focus on examining molecular genetic risk and resilience in emerging adults, genetic interaction with psychosocial risk factors, and polygenic prediction models of suicide, autism, treatment-resistant depression, and psychosis.
