Professor Murray Cairns is an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow. He heads the Neurobehavioural Genomics Laboratory at the University of Newcastle, School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy. This research is focusing on the molecular dynamics of systems dysregulated in complex psychiatric disorders. This exploration, facilitated by high-throughput functional genomics and systems biology, is providing new insight into the disorders network architecture with respect to, diagnostic status or sub-phenotypes. The research is also developing integrated approaches to identify disease-associated gene networks at the individual level that can serve as functionally significant biomarker signatures with clinical utility in precision medicine.
