Even today, suicide is a taboo topic often discussed in whispers and swept
to the shadows of society, despite it being the leading cause of death among
youth in Utah and the tenth leading cause of death in the United States.
Researchers at the University of Utah Health are collaborating with Janssen
Research & Development to shed light on these understudied and tragic
deaths. The research will attempt to identify genetic variations associated
with an increased risk for suicide.
