Additional Information

Stephan is a key member of the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium (PGC), a collaborative effort that involves hundreds of datasets from more than 30 countries. To do this, he has created a computer pipeline that standardizes data, imputes missing values, performs the final analysis and brings the results into displayable format (e.g. the Web based toolRICOPILI). This collection of computer programs is unique in its ability to analyze millions and millions of data points in a short period of time, a critical ability that has allowed genome-wide association studies of psychiatric data to produce concrete results. Stephan’s current GWAS research focuses on schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and cross-disease analyses. Light snack will be provided.
