Stanford Bio-X Frontiers in Interdisciplinary Biosciences Seminar, "Molecular, Genetic and Neural Mechanisms of Moods and Emotions"

Mar 08, 2018 (Thu) | 12:15 PM -1:05 PM
James H. Clark Center, 318 Campus Drive, Seminar Room S360 : Stanford, CA

Lunch to be served at 12:00 PM; seminar begins at 12:15 PM. Understanding the biological causes of Major Depression continues to present a major challenge to clinicians, geneticists and neurobiologists. This talk is an overview of a multidisciplinary and collaborative team effort, which includes colleagues at Stanford University, whereby we tackle this challenge by integrating genomic and neurobiological approaches in the context of both human and animal studies. Our research program is uncovering some molecular players that are not “the usual suspects”, thereby providing possibilities for new biomarkers and novel drug targets in the treatment of Major Depression.
