CeFH Genetics Friday: Martin Tesli "Genome-wide association study of ADHD in MoBa – potentials and challenges"
Presentation by Martin Tesli, Norwegian Institute of Public Health
About the speaker
Martin Tesli is MD PhD with specialization in psychiatry, currently working at Department of mental disorders NIPH and NORMENT CoE Oslo University Hospital. He has experience with molecular genetic studies in schizophrenia and bipolar disorders, in particular the use of polygenic risk scores to investigate underlying brain dysfunction and the validity of the current diagnostic systems.
About the presentation
Tesli will present his ongoing genome-wide association study (GWAS) of ADHD (N~1500 cases/1500 controls) in MoBa, which will be included in the large, international collaborative project Psychiatric Genomics Consortium (PGC). Potentials for further studies using these data will be discussed, in addition to analytical challenges.
About Genetics Fridays
The “Genetics Fridays” include presentations and discussions, and are open for all FHI employees who are working with genetics, planning to implement genetics in their work or merely have an interest in geneticscob. The intention is to create an informal gathering where those who are interested can share knowledge and experience, come up with ideas and discuss projects and methods. The meeting will start with a presentation at 13:00, but the available workspaces of the centre can be used all day for mingling and discussions regarding genetics. And there will be waffles!
Contact Kristine L. Jacobsen if you have ideas on interesting topics we can address, and/or if you want to present something yourself.
