Research in CTGlab explores the genetic and environmental causes of individual differences in behavior, cognition and mental and physical health. We integrate knowledge from different fields (biology, genetics, neuroimaging, bioinformatics) and use and develop statistical tools to analyze and understand genomic data for complex traits.
Postdocs Iris Jansen, Jeanne Savage and others from CNCR-CTG find novel genetic risk factors for Alzheimer’s dementia, published in Nature Genetics
PhD student Christiaan de Leeuw (CNCR-CTG) has developed an important new tool for advanced gene-set analyses, published in Nature Communications this week
An international research team led by Professor Danielle Posthuma (VU / VUmc) has identified the genes, brain areas and cell types that are important in intelligence and neuroticism. Both studies were published June 25, 2018 in Nature Genetics.
