Genetics of Complex Disorders

The goal of the Genetics of Complex Disorders (GCD) program is to train postdoctoral (MD and PhD) and predoctoral fellows in genetic epidemiology and statistical analysis of psychiatric and other complex diseases. Our mission is to train people in all aspects of human genetic studies: study design, clinical aspects, phenotype definition, laboratory issues, and statistical analysis. The field of genetics is changing rapidly; successful investigators must be competent in a broad array of techniques, able to speak the languages of fields outside their own, and capable of collaborating effectively with scientists in other fields.
