To identify the biological underpinnings of severe mental disorders and further characterize any potential risk factors using innovative epidemiological, statistical, and genetic methods. Dr. Pulver directs a multidisciplinary team of investigators in the Epidemiology-Genetics Program in Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, and Related Disorders.
