PCMI - Symposium

Psychiatric Cell Map Initiative Symposium

November

13-15

9:00 AM-6:00 PM

Co-organized by Drs. Jeremy Willsey, Hao Li, and Nevan Krogan, the inaugural Psychiatric Cell Map Initiative Symposium will be held on campus at the University of California, San Francisco on November 13-15, 2019. The Psychiatric Cell Map Initiative (PCMI, pcmi.ucsf.edu), which was founded at UCSF by Nevan Krogan, Matt State and Jeremy Willsey, aims to bridge the gap between the genome and the clinic in the field of neuropsychiatric disorder research. In support of these missions, the symposium will focus on current progress in translating advances in gene discovery to an understanding of the molecular underpinnings of neurodevelopmental disorders, with the goal of building a community of interdisciplinary researchers that will collaboratively drive the field forward, and an emphasis on approaches spanning disorders with shared etiology.
