CAMH is home to genetics and epigenetics labs that have made ground-breaking discoveries
. Through cross-appointments and collaborations, scientists
also conduct work in imaging-genetics with the Research Imaging Centre and in Clinical Research.
The Krembil Family Epigenetics Laboratory
develops new methods to search the human genome for DNA sequences with modifications influencing the manifestation of mental illnesses.
Molecular Neuropsychiatry and Development Lab
uses genetic and molecular biology approaches to identify and characterize genes for developmental disorders.
Neurobiology of Schizophrenia Lab
is interested in disease mechanisms underlying illness, using preclinical models to investigate gene x environment interactions, epigenetics, transcription and neurodevelopment.
focuses on identifying genetic factors involved in the development of mental illnesses and addictions. This lab has one of the largest collections of DNA, with over 23,000 samples.
, researchers study the use of patients' genetic make-up to predict their response to psychiatric medications, with the goal of personalizing medication treatment.
