In focus: Colm O'Dushlaine
Colm O'Dushlaine, a research scientist in the Broad Institute's Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research, is a part of collaborations that span the globe. These collaborations vastly expand the sample set used to tease out the genetic underpinnings of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The Broad and other institutions formed the International Schizophrenia Consortium in 2006, and labs in Dublin, Cardiff, London, Cambridge, Boston, and Sweden, among other locales, donated samples. Learn more about O'Dushlaine research as part of this consortium and his path to the Broad Institute (and his science tattoo!) in the above video.
