The goal of our studies is to unravel the molecular pathways underpinning psychiatric illnesses that are associated with suicide. We use a reverse translational approach; initially we perform genetic and transcriptional studies of human postmortem brain, and abnormalities identified in the brains of psychiatric patients are investigated in animal models of psychiatric illness and in cell culture. Improved understanding of the molecular mechanisms leading to these disorders will facilitate the development of diagnostic and pharmacogenomic tools, in addition to identifying novel targets for the development of psychotropic drugs with improved efficacy.
