Abstract:

Irving Gottesman is known internationally for his work in the field of genetics. His first extensive study of the genetics of schizophrenia used a twin register that had been around for 15 years. His findings confirmed that genes were undeniably a determining factor in schizophrenia. But, contrary to popular belief, the "role played by family environment turned out to be less important than anyone would have guessed." Gottesman found room for a wide range of non-genetic factors to consider. He conducts research part-time and travels extensively consulting in the field of genetics.
