Optimizing pharmacological treatment for mood disorders and schizophrenia by:

1) taking into account gene-drug pairs affecting medication plasma levels, response and adverse effects with psychotropic medications (pharmacogenomics)

2) developing and implementing pharmacogenetic-based algorithms in clinical practice (see Pharmacogenetic Research Clinic at CAMH,

3) investigating the causal role of the gut-brain axis of medication effects and testing interventions with probiotics to alleviate mood symptoms
