2007 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh
His scientific interests lie mostly in Schizophrenia, Genetics, Bipolar disorder, Genome-wide association study and Psychosis. His Schizophrenia study is concerned with Psychiatry in general. As part of his studies on Genetics, Douglas Blackwood often connects relevant subjects like Disease.
His Bipolar disorder research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pathogenesis, Multifactorial Inheritance, Clinical psychology, Age of onset and Major depressive disorder. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Odds ratio, Case-control study, Genetic association, Autism spectrum disorder and ANK3. His research in Psychosis intersects with topics in Single-photon emission computed tomography, Nuclear medicine, Prefrontal cortex, P3 amplitude and Control subjects.
Douglas Blackwood mainly investigates Genetics, Bipolar disorder, Schizophrenia, Psychiatry and Psychosis. Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association, Candidate gene and Genetic linkage are subfields of Genetics in which his conducts study. The Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Case-control study, ANK3 and Genetic architecture.
His biological study deals with issues like Major depressive disorder, which deal with fields such as Genetic heterogeneity. His research investigates the connection between Schizophrenia and topics such as Copy-number variation that intersect with issues in Intellectual disability. In his research on the topic of Psychosis, Oncology is strongly related with Internal medicine.
His primary areas of study are Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Bipolar disorder, Schizophrenia and Copy-number variation. His work on Psychosis expands to the thematically related Genetics. His study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Major depressive disorder, Genetic association, Haplotype and Genetic architecture.
The various areas that he examines in his Bipolar disorder study include Candidate gene, Genetic heterogeneity, Prefrontal cortex and Comorbidity. He is interested in Psychiatric genetics, which is a field of Schizophrenia. His Copy-number variation research also works with subjects such as
His main research concerns Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Bipolar disorder, Schizophrenia and Bioinformatics. Douglas Blackwood interconnects Case-control study, Linkage disequilibrium, Genetic association, Major depressive disorder and Genetic architecture in the investigation of issues within Genome-wide association study. Within one scientific family, Douglas Blackwood focuses on topics pertaining to Comorbidity under Bipolar disorder, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Clinical psychology.
His Schizophrenia study combines topics in areas such as Psychosis and Disease. His research on Bioinformatics also deals with topics like
