The research of Brandon J. Coombes, Ph.D., focuses on the genetics of complex diseases, particularly in psychiatric disorders such as opioid use disorder, alcohol use disorder, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety.

Genetic risk of traits is now offered commercially, and it will be critical to consider how to best bring these risk estimates into the clinic. Dr. Coombes' goal is to apply them equitably and personalize medicine for patients.
