New MRC funding to study genomic changes in schizophrenia brain

The Medical Research Council has funded us to continue our research into the genomic underpinnings of schizophrenia. The project will use cutting-edge methods to profile gene regulation (DNA modifications, histone modifications, gene expression, alternative splicing) in purified neuronal nuclei isolated from a unique collection of post-mortem brain samples. Given the evidence for a neurodevelopmental component […]
