Outcomes From Chromosomal Microarray Testing in Intellectual Disability Psychiatry


Room 508 | Roberts Building (link Map)
Malet Place | London | WC1E 7JE | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Speaker: Kate Wolfe, UCL Division of Psychiatry.

Chromosomal deletions and duplications, known as copy number variations (CNVs), are a class of genetic variants highly implicated in the aetiology of neurodevelopmental disorders. Many CNVs have been shown to operate across traditional diagnostic boundaries, increasing risk for both intellectual disabilities (ID) and psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and autism. I will present the results of a study of 202 adults with idiopathic ID recruited from community and in-patient psychiatry services across England. My talk will explore approaches to interpreting CNV data combining both genetic and phenotypic analysis methodologies.
