Canadian Institutes of Health Research Grant

To advance mental health research, the Centre participates in multidisciplinary research cadres globally to maximize its neuroinformatics infrastructure and longitudinal cohort study MAVAN. Supported by a CIHR Grant, the Centre’s statistical genetics and epigenetics expertise and Dr Ashley Wazana’s team of researchers hope, in the next 5 years, to identify psychiatric diagnoses at age 13 and to understand, by gender, the role of prenatal anxiety/depression, the timing of prenatal stress by trimester and the role of genetic vulnerability.
