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.

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”. 

Andrea Giuseppe Allegrini, PhD student in the CAPICE project, also presented a poster on “The p Factor: Genetic Analyses Support a General Dimension of Psychopathology in Childhood “ in the same Congress.

Aims of the second poster:

1. Systematically investigate phenotypic p across time and across raters.
2. Assess the prediction of phenotypic p with genetic p.
3. Systematically investigate genetic components.
4. Compare the phenotypic and genetic stability of p across childhood.
