Professor participates in companion studies linking genes, increased schizophrenia risk

Marquis Vawter, Ph.D., research professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Human Behavior at the UCI School of Medicine, participated in companion studies published in Nature, analyzing regions of the human genome associated with increased risk of schizophrenia. Researchers knew that the disorder carries a 60 to 80 percent inheritability and wanted to determine common […]
