The Brain Molecular Genetics Laboratory was established in 1988 on the basis of the Pathomorphology Laboratory, headed by professor Marat E. Vartanyan. Up to the 2012 E.I.Rogayev, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Professor, the laureate of the State Award, headed the Brain Molecular Genetics Laboratory. Over the past years, multidisciplinary research studies in the laboratory were focused on the hereditary predisposition towards psychiatric disorders:
