Before I went into a PhD program in Organizational Behavior, I was a research assistant at the Psychology Research Laboratory at McLean Hospital in Belmont, MA for four years. Under the guidance of Deborah Levy, I conducted research on schizophrenia. The following publications have emerged from the collaborations in this lab:
- Vacic, V. et al. (2011). Duplications of the neuropeptide receptor gene VIPR2 confer significant risk for schizophrenia. Nature, 471(7339), 499-503.
- Verena Krause, Olga Krastoshevsky, Michael J. Coleman, J. Alexander Bodkin, Jan Lerbinger, Lenore Boling, Fred Johnson, Anne Gibbs, Jonathan O. Cole, Zhuying Huang, Nancy R. Mendell, Deborah L. Levy. (2010). Tailoring the definition of the clinical schizophrenia phenotype in linkage studies. Schizophrenia Research, 116, 133-142.
- Shane E McCarthy et al. (2009) Microduplications of 16p11.2 are associated with schizophrenia. Nature Genetics, 41, 1223-1227.
