Title

Genetic Epidemiology of Drug Dependence

Status

Open

Project Description

 Our group works with large data sets that largely consist of behavioral data on persons with substance dependence, neuropsychological measures, as well as genetic data. Depending upon student interest and skill sets, a data set can be constructed that will be designed to address a specific research question. Students can work on analyzing data set (with assistance from a statistician), conduct literature reviews, and/or become familiar with structured psychiatric instruments and the literature of psychiatric genetics.
