This group, which includes researchers from the departments of psychiatry and genetics, is presently focused on the genetic aspects of psychosis. In order to elucidate the genetic basis of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, patients are gathered in collaboration with other universities and clinics in Turkey, and genetic investigations are carried out in our university. Further investigations are also conducted as joint projects with universities abroad.
