Research Projects - Flint Group

1. Introduction

We are focusing in particular on the origins of stress-related conditions, such as anxiety and depression. These disorders currently have relatively ineffective treatments; they are common, disabling and can be difficult to treat. We have been working on the genetic basis of susceptibility to anxiety and depression for over a decade. Recent scientific advances are making it increasingly possible to analyse the role that specific genes play in psychiatric disorders.

Mouse genome sequencing (in collaboration with Dave Adams group at the Sanger Institute)
