Jason Stein, PhD (Assistant Professor, Genetics and Neuroscience Center) and Michael Love, Dr. Rer. Nat. (Assistant Professor, Biostatistics and Genetics) are co-PIs on a new R01 award from NIH titled “pathQTL: Integrative Multi-Omics Causal Inference of Molecular Mechanisms Leading to Neuropsychiatric Illness”. The goal of the project is to develop and experimentally validate a statistical tool, called pathQTL, to predict the causal molecular and brain structural paths by which a genetic variant creates risk for neuropsychiatric disorder through the integration of multi-omic QTL datasets.
Recruitment for postdoctoral fellows to focus on this project is underway. Interested candidates are welcome to contact Drs. Stein or Love directly to discuss these opportunities.
