“High risk” cell populations may be playing important roles in human disorders and diseases

Research in the University of Utah Gregg Lab is focused on understanding genetic and epigenetic pathways and neuronal circuits that influence motivated behaviors and susceptibility to mental illness.

Mental illnesses are extremely complex and involve both genetic and environmental factors that alter brain functions and behavioral drives.

The NIMH estimates that about one in four Americans suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder with nearly 6% suffering serious disabilities as a result, and that the total cost of serious mental illness in the US exceeds $317 billion per year.
