The goals of the Schizophrenia Program are to generate new knowledge about the neurobiology and psychopharmacology of schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. Both animal and human research projects are conducted and new medications with novel mechanisms of action for the treatment of schizophrenia are tested for efficacy and safety. The program also provides education to health professionals and the public and provides clinical consultations to community psychiatrists about treatment-resistant patients with psychosis.
