What makes some people more susceptible to mental health conditions?

A recent revolution in our genetic understanding of illnesses like schizophrenia and autism has produced some surprising insights.

Join us to discover how new research in neuroscience could lead to better treatments and a more realistic view of mental health.

Dr Liz Tunbridge is a Royal Society Research Fellow and Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Oxford.

This event is part of Café Scientifique, an informal dialogue based event with a scientist. The talk is free to attend and seats are given on a first come, first served basis. Doors open from 18:00
