Suzanne Gonzalez

Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health and of Pharmacology

Research Summary

My laboratory focuses on neuropsychiatric genetics in diverse populations. I am particularly interested in understanding how genetic polymorphisms within key physiological pathways translate into clinical phenotypes of psychiatric disorders, such as bipolar disease and schizophrenia.
