A new Internet-based forum for schizophrenia researchers will allow them to
share ideas with colleagues, keep abreast of developments in schizophrenia
research, and learn about meetings and funding opportunities.
The Schizophrenia Research Forum, which is funded by the National Institute
of Mental Health (NIMH), allows visitors to participate in live chats about
schizophrenia research, for instance, and includes press coverage of
interviews with leaders in the field.
The latest findings in schizophrenia research are posted in a section that
lists citations of recent schizophrenia-related papers, with links to Pub-Med
A section called "current hypotheses" reviews current thinking
about causes and treatments of schizophrenia.
NIMH is providing $700,000 to fund the schizophrenia forum from 2005 to
The Mental Health Research Association and the National Alliance for
Research on Schizophrenia and Depression cosponsor the forum.
