I would think not. They have found so many different genes linked to schizophrenia that I think they wouldn't know where to begin with gene therapy. I don't know about depression or bipolar, which is the other half of schizoaffective disorder. I would guess it is the same. I think gene therapy theoretically works on diseases that have one particular gene that causes the disease which can be modified to cure the disease.
