Project summary

Maria's research goal is to better understand the aetiological mechanisms underlying risk of schizophrenia in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. During this fellowship, Maria will investigate the role of early neurodevelopmental abnormalities and measures of genetic risk in the development of schizophrenia in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. The work will be carried out in collaboration with Professor Raquel Gur at the University of Pennsylvania, Professor Naomi Wray at the Queensland Brain Institute of the University of Queensland, and Professor Anita Thapar at Cardiff University.
