Schizophrenia-focused Labs and Research Centers

This article relates to The Place Between Breaths

Print Review

Like the lab where Grace and her father work in An Na's The Place Between Breaths, scientists around the world are hard at work researching the causes of schizophrenia and investigating potential cures. Here are a few of the labs and research centers that include schizophrenia as one of their primary areas of inquiry:

Duke Schizophrenia Research Group
The Schizophrenia Research Group at Duke University in Durham, NC, focuses on the mechanisms of cognitive deficits in patients with schizophrenia. Research utilizes imaging technologies and studies metabolites, cognitive neuroscience, and the links between genetics and a patient's response to pharmaceutical therapies. The group partners with another research group in Singapore to study a cross-cultural patient population.

Johns Hopkins Schizophrenia Center
Part of Baltimore's Johns Hopkins Medicine, the Hopkins Schizophrenia Center provides clinical care for schizophrenia patients and also brings together researchers from several different clinical specialties to study schizophrenia. The Center's interdisciplinary research approach is also international, as they focus on global health initiatives and international collaborations.

Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at Broad Institute
This center, part of the joint MIT-Harvard Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was founded in 2007 by philanthropists Ted and Vada Stanley. The lab's research focuses on DNA mapping and sequencing techniques and has amassed the world's largest collection of DNA samples for psychiatric research, including studies in ADHD, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.
