NeuroGenE is the Global Initiative in Neuropsychiatric GenEthics based at the University of Oxford. We conduct global multidisciplinary research, training, and capacity-building on the ethics of psychiatric genomics. Working in partnership with the Stanley Center at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, local bioethicists and scientists, and mental health and disability rights advocates, NeuroGenE identifies and examines the fundamental ethical questions that arise in the context of global scientific research in psychiatric genomics. Our work supports the potential for global psychiatric genomics research to lead to improvements in mental health research infrastructure, and in the lives of people with mental and neurodevelopmental conditions.

Global Outreach

NeuroGenE is working with groups of local researchers in various sites, including UK (Oxford), USA (Boston), Ethiopia (Addis Ababa), Kenya (Eldoret & Kilifi), Uganda (Kampala) & South Africa (Cape Town).
