Institute presentation

Genetic epidemiology allows the identification of genetic determinants of disease in the population and contributes to the translation of this knowledge into treatment for the individual patient. The work we do in the departments of psychiatry, human genetics & cognitive neuroscience from radboudumc addresses the link between molecule – human – population by discovering key-genetic disease determinants and establishing their role as risk factors for disease. My efforts to combine these genetic risk factors with neurobiology and behavior using state-of-the-art statistical and computational methodology will significantly contribute to modifying and tailoring patients’ treatment in order to cater to their specific needs. To this end, I collaborate with clinical groups of (child) psychiatry and clinical genetics.
