Welcome to Srdjan Djurovic's research group: Psychiatric Molecular Genetics Group
The goal of the Psychiatric Molecular Genetics Group at the Department of Medical Genetics is to develop a strong research environment in molecular genetics of psychiatric disorders. The group is part of the Norwegian Centre for Mental Disorders Research, Centre of Excellence (NORMENT), which is a major collaborative effort studying clinical characteristics, neurocognitive functioning and brain biology of psychotic disorders. The group’s current research aims are to perform molecular genetic analysis to increase the knowledge and expertise in psychiatric genetics and genomics and to identify the molecular networks underlying psychiatric disease as well as to continually develop an organization to support psychiatric genetic and stem cell studies with design and planning. We aim to further elucidation of deep molecular phenotyping and functional studies, by use of stem cells/cellular modeling systems.
