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 genetics and 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 genetics. Our work supports the potential for global psychiatric genetics and 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 based in the UK (Oxford) and works with groups of local researchers in various sites, including USA (Boston), Ethiopia (Addis Ababa), Kenya (Eldoret & Kilifi), Uganda (Kampala) & South Africa (Cape Town) through a partnership with the Stanley Global Collections Initiative. NeuroGenE collaborates with local researchers directly in Ghana (Accra) with Dr. Caesar Atuire; and in India (Delhi) with Dr. Jayashree Dasgupta and Dr. Georgia Lockwood Estrin.
