Epigenetics profiling, such as analyzing DNA methylation changes in the brain, is a strategy investigators have used to understand the development of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. However, this is only one aspect of how epigenetics can be exploited in biological psychiatry. In this talk, Dr. Lachman will describe novel uses of epigenetic profiling involving ChIP-chip and ChIP-Seq in studying the molecular and genetic basis of these conditions.
Dr. Herb Lachman is an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is interested in the molecular and genetic basis of psychiatric disorders including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and addiction.
