Psychiatric & Neurodevelopmental Genetics Unit

The mission of PNGU is to identify and characterize the genetic basis of psychiatric, behavioral, and neurodevelopmental disorders and to translate these discoveries to improvements in clinical care and public health.

Phil Hyoun Lee is a computational geneticist, whose long-term research goal is to enhance our understanding of the genetic basis of complex disorders through developing and applying effective analytic strategies. She has got training in Computer Science and Statistics (BS, Seoul National University, Korea), Bioinformatics (MSc, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Korea) and Computational Biology and Machine Learning (PhD, Queen's University, Canada). Her postdoctoral training with Drs. Jordan Smoller and Shaun Purcell at MGH/HMS/Broad Institute has two major foci: genome-wide association studies of diverse psychiatric phenotypes (including case/control, brain-imaging, eQTL, and physiologic endophenotypes) and developing novel analytic tools for high-throughput genetic data analysis (i.e., pathway analysis, cross-disorder analysis).
