A genome-wide association study for shared risk across major psychiatric disorders in a nation-wide birth cohort implicates fetal neurodevelopment as a key mediator

In a GWAS comparing individuals with any psychiatric disorder to those free from all diagnoses, we demonstrate that specific genetic variants can increase the risk for multiple psychiatric outcomes simultaneously and may do so through a disruption of fetal neurodevelopment.

Genetics of suicide attempts in individuals with and without mental disorders: a population-based genome-wide association study

Molecular studies have attempted to identify specific genes that contribute to suicide risk and mental disorders are strongly linked to suicidal behavior. Given that liability for a wide range of mental disorders is associated with a common set of genetic factors, it is plausible that the effect of genes on suicidal behavior could be mediated…

Spatial fine-mapping for gene-by-environment effects identifies risk hot spots for schizophrenia

The spatial clustering of schizophrenia cases is well documented and found to be associated with urbanicity. However, despite there is substantial genetic component in the disease etiology, it is unclear the spatial clustering is related to gene by environment interaction (GxE) or not.

Elite Research Prize recipient: Bears can help us fight diabetes

Each year, five of Denmark’s research frontrunners are honoured with the Elite Research Prize. One of this year’s prizes goes to Niels Jessen from Aarhus University and the Steno Diabetes Center Aarhus at Aarhus University Hospital. He is currently looking into why bears do not suffer from serious complications despite being both inactive and fat.
