The Scalable and Systematic Neurobiology of Psychiatric and Neurodevelopmental Dysfunction Danger Genes

Date and Time

October 26, 2023
2:00–3:30 p.m. ET


A technical help webinar shall be held for potential candidates of the next Discover of Funding Alternative (NOFO): The Scalable and Systematic Neurobiology of Psychiatric and Neurodevelopmental Dysfunction Danger Genes (SSPsyGene) Consortium: Assay and Information Era Facilities (RM1) (RFA-MH-24-145 ). Nationwide Institute of Psychological Well being workers shall be accessible to reply questions associated to this NOFO. Participation within the webinar is elective and isn’t required to use to those companion purposes.

Awards underneath this NOFO shall be a part of a collaborative consortium with the long-term aim of growing a complete phenotypic catalog throughout organic scales for genes and gene variants related to neurodevelopmental and psychiatric issues (NPDs). This useful resource shall be made accessible for broad use by the biomedical group. The SSPsyGene Consortium will help multidisciplinary analysis facilities to optimize and implement systematic and scalable approaches for characterizing the developmental, molecular, mobile, techniques, and organismal neurobiological perform of genes related to danger for NPDs. The ensuing phenotypic information shall be built-in throughout modalities, ranges of group, and genes to create a harmonized, built-in information base that types a stable basis of information wanted to make sturdy inferences into potential shared and distinctive illness mechanisms. To perform this goal, NIMH established and proposes to increase a consortium of investigators at a number of websites and with broad experience within the areas of genomics, excessive throughput know-how, and neurobiology, linked collectively by way of a central Information Useful resource and Administrative Coordination Middle that serves to advertise collaboration and communication and to offer information integration throughout the consortium.
