The International Society of Psychiatric Genetics is a learned society that aims to "promote and facilitate research in the genetics of psychiatric disorders, substance use disorders and allied traits".[1] To this end, among other things, it organizes an annual "World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics".[2] It also awards each year the "Ming Tsuang Lifetime Achievement Award" for scientists who have made major contributions to the field of psychiatric genetics and the "Theodore Reich Young Investigator Award" for work of exceptional merit by researchers under 40 years of age.[3]
