We are excited to announce the upcoming GUTS Genetics Symposium and invite all consortium members and colleagues to join us.

Event Details:

  • Date: Monday, February 3rd, 2025
  • Location: The exact location is yet to be determined, but it will be somewhere in Utrecht.
  • Time: 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM

During the GUTS genetics symposium we will organize an inspiring morning with an introduction to genetics and some great keynote speakers among which Prof Steve Faraone. Prof Faraone, is a distinguished Professor and Vice Chair for Research, Department of Psychiatry, Norton College of Medicine at SUNY Upstate Medical University. He researches childhood mental disorder with a focus on genetic processes related to self-regulation-relevant behaviours.

In the afternoon we will discuss together how your research in GUTS may benefit from genetic research and data. We will learn about polygenic risk scores (PRS), tips and pitfalls and the most recent developments in the field. 

More details, including the agenda and registration information, will be shared with you soon.

For now, please save the date to join us on February 3rd in Utrecht and bring fellow (junior) colleagues for whom this might be of interest to broaden their horizons in the field of genetics!
