The 26th World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics (WCPG) will be held October 11 – 15, 2018 in Glasgow, Scotland at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Center.  Glasgow, a Gaelic word meaning “Green Valley”, is a remarkable city known for its scenic views. We hope you will set aside time to enjoy what the historic city has to offer in addition to actively participating in the 2018 World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics.

The WCPG is taking place at an exciting time in the field of mental health research when an increasing number of genetic risk factors for psychiatric disorders are being identified, diagnostic boundaries and criteria are being re-evaluated and new ways to integrate the underlying biology with clinical diagnosis are being sought. This congress aims to expand the discipline of psychiatric genetics to encompass all researchers whose work in neuroscience, neurobiology and genetics has future implications for developing new treatments for people with major mental illness. Scientists from all over the world will again come together for this five-day conference to share their expertise, research findings and personal experiences with the goal of improving the quality of life for those living with psychiatric disorders.

For 2018, we encourage submissions related to the broad field of psychiatric genetics and the following topics in particular:

  1. Animal and cell based models
  2. Clinical Translation
  3. Biobanking
  4. Ethical issues of new technologies
  5. Functional genomics
  6. Genetic counseling
  7. Imaging genetics
  8. Personalized medicine and pharmacogenomics
