Dr Nigel Williams
Senior Lecturer, MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics & Genomics
My primary research interests focus on the molecular genetic analysis of common neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders, including schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Parkinson’s disease.
