Advancing global research by investing in people.
There's a strong, ongoing “legacy of exclusion” in scientific research, leaving parts of the world still sorely underrepresented across fields. Psychiatric genetics is no exception.
Here's the problem: diverse genetic data is a key to finding out what causes psychiatric conditions - from schizophrenia to autism spectrum disorders. When we don’t champion researchers from underrepresented regions - and overlook data from their communities - we miss out on a great deal of promising biology.
That's why GINGER's collaborative approach is so important. We equip early-career researchers with the skills they need to run large-scale psychiatric genetic studies and develop mental health research in their own communities. Through our programs, GINGER researchers become vital and equal contributors to knowledge.
