Schizophrenia Center Annual Symposium 2014


June 11, 2014 | 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM

Our symposium brings together world-renowned experts in schizophrenia and other mental illnesses, whose areas of expertise are diverse yet complementary. This year, the speakers will present their cutting-edge and multidisciplinary approaches, including those that interface between epidemiology and brain imaging, basic science and public outreach, as well as clinical psychiatry and computer science. Furthermore, we will hold an open panel discussion with both our invited speakers and experts at Johns Hopkins, and a round-table lunch discussions with the speakers. Through this symposium, we hope to translate the efforts of the lab bench to the bedside, and eventually to society by discussing and addressing schizophrenia and other mental illnesses from both clinical and scientific standpoints.
