Description

In this podcast we talk to Professor Cathryn Lewis, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology & Statistics, Head of Department, Social, Genetic & Developmental Psychiatry Centre, King's College London.

Cathryn discusses the work of her research group and how determining the polygenic component of mental health disorders can be accurately measured, and how to use genetics to assess people's risk of mental disorder.

Cathryn also explains how are polygenic risk scores helpful for child and adolescent mental health professionals, and why should they take an interest in this, and how to translate research into clinical use.
