A talk with Johnson & Johnson / One Mind Rising Star Dr. Jun Li.

Welcome to Brain Waves! In today’s post I talk with Johnson & Johnson / One Mind Rising Star Jun Li Ph.D. about his incisive proposal to try to identify gene variants that might strongly predispose people toward developing bipolar disorder. Jun is a brilliant, compassionate scientist who has made many great contributions to understanding psychiatric genetics, and his Rising Star proposal (read a summary) seems to hold much promise.

The Q&A period has closed for this post.

The Q&A period has concluded. Many thanks to all for participating, and thanks to Jun for his insights.
