RESEARCH PROJECT

Schizophrenia is now recognized as one of the major public health concerns, as it is associated with a reduced life quality, a shorter life expectancy, and a huge financial burden. Accumulating studies have shown an estimated 80% heritability and brain alternations in schizophrenia. Here, we applying integrated approaches on genome-wide association datasets, Norwegian biobank, and registry samples to evaluate the associations among genetic factors, brain morphology, and schizophrenia, as well as to exploring the biological mechanism underlying these associations.
