Title: Novel Insights into the Neurobiology of Stress-Induced Psychiatric Disorders
Abstract: Stress disorders such as major depression and PTSD are some of the most common psychiatric disorders and their prevalence has increased significantly against a background of growing global turmoil. I will present my research findings which have utilised a multidisciplinary research strategy to elucidate the role of non-coding transcriptomic and the epitranscriptomic mechanisms in the pathophysiology of these disorders and how they might be harnessed to develop new diagnostics and next-generation therapeutics.
