Jason Stein and Michael Love Awarded R01 from NIH

January 16, 2019

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.
