World Congress 2021

The International Society of Psychiatric Genetics (ISPG) warmly invites you to attend the VIRTUAL World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics (WCPG), October 11-15, 2021. This is a time of unprecedented discovery and advances in psychiatric genetics. With the growing understanding of the genetic and molecular basis of psychiatric disorders, new opportunities for the identification of novel treatments are on the horizon.  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.  ISPG is committed to providing you with this important forum where you can share knowledge and build community!

The theme of this year’s WCPG is “Genomics: The Journey to Improve Mental Health”. Among the scope of topics, we will highlight how genetics improves diagnostics and treatment of neurodevelopmental disease, provide an update on pharmacogenetics in psychiatry, and discuss how results from large scale genome-wide association studies can be translated for clinical application. Furthermore, we will explore how we can best integrate genetic findings with molecular and cellular function and combine information on the enviroment with the genome for refined risk prediction.
