Stanley Center

The increasingly successful discovery of genetic variants associated with disease is only the beginning. Our goal is not to end with a list of genes, but to contribute to new understandings of pathogenesis, the identification of biomarkers, and above all, new treatments. As a result, the Stanley Center has not divided itself into disease-specific intellectual silos. Rather we are organized into intellectually porous teams based on principal disciplinary areas of focus:

  1. Genetics
  2. Interdisciplinary Neurobiology and Model Systems
  3. Therapeutics

We also focus extensively on new methodologies and tool development to further our understanding of biological mechanisms of disease. We collaborate with research groups around the world to identify important patient populations, technologies, and scientific approaches that will significantly advance our research objectives and knowledge for the psychiatric research community.
