Lage Lab is awarded significant grant from the Lundbeck Foundation to study psychiatric diseases

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

We’re delighted to announce that the Lage Lab has been awarded a three year grant from the Lundbeck Foundation to study the protein networks perturbed by genetics in psychiatric diseases. This project will enable us to strengthen our current experimental work in the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute and is a collaboration with the Danish iPSYCH consortium. The grant will furthermore support training of Danish postdocs in the Lage Lab and at the Broad Institute.
