Over the past decade, the field of psychiatric genetics has undergone significant advancements, particularly in our understanding of schizophrenia. These genetics studies have not only expanded our knowledge, but also sparked many new questions. One question that we are eagerly exploring is: What factors allow some individuals to evade schizophrenia despite having inherited a substantial burden of risk genes for the disorder? In this talk, Dr. Hess will discuss his latest research aimed at uncovering genes behind resilience to schizophrenia, underscoring the burgeoning field within psychiatric genetics dedicated to this phenomenon.
