Dear Colleagues,

The International Society of Psychiatric Genetics (ISPG) warmly invites you to attend the World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics (WCPG), October 10-14, 2023, in Montreal, Canada. These are exciting times in psychiatric genetics. With unprecedented data availability, we are moving from gene-identification to understanding mechanisms of psychiatric disorders, allowing for a rethinking of psychiatric categorization and for new intervention approaches to be envisaged. The WCPG is the premier international scientific meeting for research in psychiatric genetics and related areas. Leading experts of genetics, neuroscience, and psychiatry from all over the world will be participating.

The theme of this year’s WCPG is “Putting People First in Psychiatric Genetics.” With this motto, we want to give attention to the importance of the people in our field - scientists, researchers, practitioners, and patients. We hope to highlight ISPG's strategic focus on diversity, inclusion, and equity through focusing on the personal aspect of our field as well as the scientific.

We look forward to seeing you in Montreal!
