Lage Lab hosts Stanley Center Program Meeting
Kasper hosted the Stanley Center Program Meeting where he gave a talk titled “Functional interpretation of genetic data in psychiatric diseases using human neuronal protein-protein interaction networks.” In addition, Yu-Han Hsu and Greta Pintacuda, postdocs in the Lage Lab and Eggan Lab, presented their work titled “Combining proteomics with human genetics to study neuropsychiatric disease.” Great job everyone!
BINe poster wins the popular poster and judge-based vote at 2019 Broad Retreat
Poster led by Greta Pintacuda from Kevin Eggan’s lab on our joint Stanley Center at the Broad Institute project to map protein networks of psychiatric risk genes in human neurons won both the popular poster award and judge-based vote at The 2019 Broad Retreat. Only 12 awards were given to 260 featured posters. Congratulations BINe team!
Kasper gives plenary talk at WCPG 2019
Kasper gave a plenary talk at World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics 2019 where he discussed the functional interpretation of genetic data in psychiatric diseases and the insights from tissue specific protein-protein interaction networks for schizophrenia.
April Kim and Heiko Horn gives platform presentations at ASHG 2019
April presented the Stanley Center at the Broad Institute Brain Interaction Network (BINe) project, in collaboration with Kevin Eggan, Tarjinder Singh, Mark Daly and Hailiang Huang, to map neuron-specific protein interactions of schizophrenia genes.
Heiko presented his work on combining tumor genome data and protein interaction networks to identify tumor vulnerabilities, a project in great collaboration with James Neal and Gaddy Getz.
