Personalized Medicine in Psychiatry: Tracking the Mind to Improve Lives

In this special lecture, Alexander B. Niculescu (Dept of Psychiatry, IU School of Medicine) will describe how his group is using genomics and phenomics to
revolutionize psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. Their approach integrates genetic studies, bioinformatics data mining, predictive tests, and a
multidimensional model for mental landscape. A higher degree of mathematization and automation of what they do is a desirable next step.

A pizza lunch will be served.
