Individual vulnerability to stress exposure plays an important role in the development of mental disorders. So far, very little is known about the underlying molecular mechanisms of individual vulnerability. In my research project, I investigate the role of noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) in the development of individual vulnerability as well as in the paternal inheritance of stress response. A better understanding of the molecular roles of ncRNA in the brain and in sperm could be crucial for the detection of individual risk groups and indicate consequences for following generations.
