Seeking Knowledge to Cure and Prevent

Our clinical research programs range from efficacy and treatment-response studies to clinical trials and epidemiology. Our basic research encompasses bioinformatics, genetics, neuroscience, neuroimaging, and molecular biology - all in an effort to unlock the causal pathways to the major psychiatric conditions and to use this knowledge to develop practical means to improve diagnosis and treatment.
