GENETICS IN MENTAL ILLNESS <br> TOPIC OF UB PRESENTATION

The role of genetic factors in mental illness will be discussed Feb. 8 by University at Buffalo scientists Dr. Michele T. Pato and Dr. Carlos N. Pato.

Their presentation, "Breaking the Genetic Code of Mental Illness," will take place during a 7:30 a.m. "UB at Sunrise" breakfast meeting in the Center for Tomorrow on UB's North Campus.

A husband-and-wife team, the Patos are both doctors of psychiatry at UB, where they are co-directors of the university's Laboratory of Psychiatric and Molecular Genetics.

The couple, associate professors of psychiatry at UB, were awarded a National Institutes of Health grant of more than $7 million. They hope to find the molecular causes of such illnesses as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
