Na Cai’s research group focuses on understanding the etiology of neuropsychiatric conditions, with a particular focus on Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). In particular, the group focuses on how genetic variants interact with both the internal metabolic environment and external stressors in conferring disease risk and heterogeneity. The ultimate goal of Na Cai and her team is to use large-scale phenotyping, genetics and multi-omics approaches to identify symptomatic profiles and biological markers to improve diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of the disease.
