Blog & News


The CAPICE blog hosts news and announcements, events, media and articles, mostly written by the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs).
They constantly pursue the publication of articles about their research during their activities carried on within this project, and this blog works as a travelogue to disseminate the research results to a broad audience of scientists, clinicians, patients and their parents and the general public.

This article contains information of poster "Phenome-wide association study of caffeine PRS and mental health outcomes across the lifespan using the ALSPAC pregnancy cohort " presented by Laura Schellhas, ESR in the CAPICE project, at the 4th Mendelian Randomization Conference in Bristol on July 17, 2019. 

CAPICE was one of the sponsors of the "14th International Workshop on Neonatology", Cagliari, Italy, October 24-27, 2018. The “14th International Workshop on Neonatology – The revolution of microbiomics” had more than 700 participants and was accompanied, as the previous editions, by many national and international institutions and scientific societies. On Friday October 26th, a Workshop session has been dedicated to a Meeting on advances in pediatric psychopathology, where the CAPICE project findings and forthcoming steps were presented.

In August 2018, Elis Haan and Laura Schellhas had a great opportunity to be part of the Green Man Festival in Wales, UK. One of the areas of the festival is called Einstein’s Garden, which brings scientific research closer to the public. Researchers collaborate with artists to create a playful, interactive and colorful world that illustrates research work and encourages communication between scientists and festival attendees.

CAPICE project's coordinator Prof. Christel Middeldorp presented a poster in the 26th World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics (WCPG) (October 11 -15, 2018, Glasgow, Scotland). Here the agenda of the event is available. The title of the poster is “The value of polygenic risk scores in predicting the transition from childhood and adolescent psychiatric symptoms into chronic adult psychopathology”. 

The second workshop of CAPICE project on “Introduction to the statistical analysis of Genome-wide association studies (GWAS)” at Imperial College London held from 2 to 6 July 2018. The lectures were good and especially the practical sessions are well organized and easy to follow.
