About the Keynote Speaker
David C. Glahn, PhD
Professor of Psychiatry, Yale University
Director, ADAPTING Laboratory, Institute for Living, Hartford Hospital

Dr. Glahn's research focuses on the genetics of brain structure and function. His research objectives include elucidating the neurobiological roots of major mental illnesses through the integration of cognitve neurophyschological, functional and structural neuroimaging and behavioral and molecular genetic approaches. Ultimately, he hopes to identify the genes involved in affective and psychotic illnesses as well as those that influence non-pathological brain structure and function. By localizing the genes involved in mental illness, he hopes to better understand the underlying biology of these complex diseases, improve future treatments and create the potential for prevention strategies.
