The aim of this meeting is to encourage practitioners of neuroscience, systems biology, bioinformatics, epidemiology and genomics to discuss and debate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in understanding the genomics of various brain disorders.

Psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and depression, and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, are placing an increasing burden on the developed world. Technical advances over the past five years, including genome-wide association studies and new generation sequencing studies, have led to the discovery of many predisposing loci for both psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders.

This meeting will summarise the advances and remaining challenges in the genomics of various brain disorders, focusing on the lessons from each field and charting the way forward. We will discuss recent insights into genomic architecture and the emerging biology of disease. We will consider how best to gain biological understanding from both common and rare allele findings and explore the translational and clinical applications, focusing on early detection of risk, biomarkers and stratified medicine.

Scientific sessions:
Genetic architecture
Connecting genetics to biology
Systems biology
Population studies
Modelling disease
Predicting risk
New technologies

We welcome abstracts from all areas relevant to the main themes of the meeting, for both oral and poster presentations. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted.

Please get in touch for further information on sponsorship and exhibition packages.
