Ruderfer Lab

Our group is at the intersection of genomics, biomedical informatics and psychiatry and has two broad research interests.

  • Capturing and extracting information to aid in elucidating genetic etiology of behavioral health traits and psychiatric diagnoses
  • Utilizing genetics/genomics to understand biological mechanism and interventional strategies of psychiatric disorders

Our group is part of the Division of Genetic Medicine, the Departments of Medicine, Psychiatry and Biomedical Informatics and the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. We are also a member of the Vanderbilt Genetics Institute.
