New findings on schizophrenia’s biological processes by ISP faculty

Using a computational model they developed, researchers at the School of Medicine have discovered more than 500 new protein-protein interactions (PPIs) associated with genes linked to schizophrenia. The findings, published in npj Schizophrenia, could lead to greater understanding of the biological underpinnings of this mental illness, as well as point the way to treatments.

Senior investigator Madhavi Ganapathiraju, ISP and biomedical informatics faculty member in the School of Medicine, noted that there have been many genome-wide association studies (GWAS) that have identified gene variants associated with an increased risk for schizophrenia, but in most cases there is little known about the proteins that these genes make, what they do and how they interact.

First Call for Joining team ISP

Dear ISP friends,
As you may know there is a "Race for the Cure" event every year at Pittsburgh that is happening at May 8th this year. Last year we formed the team ISP to attend the event and we had a lot of fun in a shiny day with some of you (You can find a picture below in which Jeya is asking where are the others?!). This year we renewed the registration for our team to attend the race again and encourage those who are fighting cancer by spreading the story of Michele's victory.
Please join us:  http://pittsburgh.info-komen.org/goto/isp2016
Best,Mahdi

Thanks to Shaghayegh Sahebi and Gaurav Trivedi, we have created our ISP facebook account. We try to improve our internal communications and promote our program using this tool!

 We have three accounts: one facebook account, one facebook page and one facebook closed group. The first two are public and the last one is only for ISP current student, alumni, faculty and staff.

1. facebook account: Pitt Isp

ISPer can use this account to communicate their research, study and daily life.

2. facebook page: Intelligent Systems Program at University of Pittsburgh

We will share ISP official news on this page, so please DO NOT post on this page, but welcome to comment.

3. facebook closed group: ISP@UPITT

This is a closed group for ISP current students, alumni, ISP faculty and staff. We will discuss job opportunities, research opportunities, share research resources, job interview experience in it.

Please add our account as your friend, share your research and daily life on it; join our closed group, share your study or work experience; invite friends to like our facebook page, so more and more people know our program.
