As a molecular biologist and geneticist, Barbara’s research is focused on understanding the genetic contribution to psychiatric disorders and related behavioural traits, in particular in the externalizing spectrum. In her research, she integrates gene-identification approaches with bioinformatics, neuroimaging, and different model systems to map the biological pathways leading from gene to adaptive and maladaptive behaviour.
