MAPrc schizophrenia research at the international level

Dr Erica Neill recently attended the Schizophrenia International Research Society conference in Florence to present her data on drug models of psychosis. Dr Neill, Eric Tan and Professor Susan Rossell (all from the MAPrc Cognitive Neuropsychiatry Team), each had their poster presentations short listed in the top 40 (out of 800) by judges from the prestigious 'Schizophrenia Bulletin' journal. Dr Neill then met with researchers at the Justus-Liebig-Universität Giessen in Germany to set up a collaboration aimed at examining the genetics of psychosis. This alliance will help both Australian and German researchers to recruit the large number of participants needed in order to conduct genetic research.
