Dr. Duncan’s work is at the intersection of psychology, statistical genetics, and neuroscience. The Duncan Lab use massive datasets and primarily computational approaches to identify risk factors and mechanisms contributing to mental health problems like schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Translational work in the lab leverages biomarkers and human postmortem brain tissue to advance the ultimate goal of building more rational approaches to classification, prevention, and treatment of psychiatric disorders.
