What We Do
Our research encompasses understanding psychiatric disorders through studies in neurogenetics and neurochemistry; functional brain imaging across the lifespan; evaluating cognition deficits in schizophrenia; understanding the molecular and cellular basis of Alzheimer’s disease; early intervention for people at high risk; and culturally competent care.
Our focus is to diminish the impact of psychiatric illness by changing the landscape of brain health, and adding to the knowledge base — from genes and neurons, to drugs and receptors, to cultural understanding.
