Genetic links between hot flashes and psychiatric disorders suggest new opportunities for treatment and shared mechanistic pathways

Laramie Duncan, PhD

Assistant Professor, Stanford University

Director, Integrative Mental Health Lab

Dr. Duncan’s work is at the intersection of psychology, statistical genetics, and neuroscience.   Her group uses massive datasets and primarily computational approaches to identify mechanisms contributing to mental health problems like schizophrenia, depression, and PTSD.  Current projects include 1) translation of schizophrenia genetic risk variants into biological mechanisms; 2) the role of sex hormones in psychiatric disorders including novel discoveries about shared genetic influences on menopause symptoms and psychiatric disorders, and 3) human postmortem brain tissue studies of genetics-identified targets; 4) cross-disorder and trans-ancestry analyses of psychiatric disorders.

Gender/Sex Differences in Sleep: A Model for Precision Medicine

Susan Redline, MD, MPH

Peter C. Farrell Professor of Sleep Medicine,

Harvard Medical School

Professor of Epidemiology,

Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health

Director of the Programs in Sleep and Cardiovascular Medicine and Sleep Medicine Epidemiology,

Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Dr. Redline has led epidemiological studies and clinical trials designed to 1) elucidate the etiologies of sleep disorders in both adults and children, including the role of genetic and early life developmental factors; and 2) understand the cardiovascular and other health outcomes of sleep disorders and the role of sleep interventions in improving health and well-being. She leads the Sleep Reading Center for a number of major multicenter studies and founded and co-directs the National Sleep Research Resource, an international sleep data sharing repository that has made research sleep data easily searchable and accessible, supporting community access to data and to a suite of open source tools. She also supports a sleep apnea patient-focused virtual community and works actively with patient advocates to improve patient education and support. She has co-authored over 650 manuscripts and has served the sleep medicine community in many ways, including as a past Board member of the Sleep Research Society and American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
