Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research

Stanley Center for psychiatric research

To address these challenges, the Stanley Center has not divided itself into disease-specific 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.

Through research at the Broad Institute and partnerships with collaborators worldwide, scientists at the Stanley Center aim to develop diagnostics and treatments to help people with mental health conditions. Our research informs our understanding of the biology of psychiatric disorders, neurodevelopmental conditions, and neurodegenerative disorders including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and Alzheimer’s.
