A clinical research-base spans epidemiology and molecular genetics as well as clinical trials, with a particular focus on common and severe disorders of childhood that often persist into adulthood (especially hyperactivity, autism, conduct disorder, depression, learning disabilities and the effects of psychosocial deprivation and brain disorders).
We aim to find DNA alterations that underlie genetic influences, clarify the gene environment correlations and interactions with genetic and longitudinal strategies and determine neurocognitive and social changes that may mediate expression. We build on our development of magnetic resonance imaging in young people and a dedicated fMRI scanner, to clarify brain alterations underlying disorders.
