Areas of Research

Dr. Bassett is an internationally renowned expert in the genetics of schizophrenia. She is the principal investigator of studies aiming to localize genes for schizophrenia and characterize genetic subtypes of schizophrenia. Her goal is to gain new insights into the mechanism of illness that should help develop new treatments. In research into familial schizophrenia, her group has localized regions of the genome likely to contain susceptibility genes for schizophrenia and has identified a candidate gene, NOS1AP, on chromosome 1. Dr. Bassett has also pioneered studies of an important but under-recognized subtype of schizophrenia known as 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome that affects 1-2 of every 100 patients with schizophrenia. An exciting initiative involves translating research findings directly into clinical practice. Dr. Bassett's active career also includes teaching and public service, particularly for the Schizophrenia Society of Canada.
