    Study: Genetics of Recurrent Early-Onset Depression
    We are searching for genes which cause depression. The study will create a DNA collection to permit qualified scientists to search for depression-related genes. This is the largest psychiatric genetics study ever attempted - we need more than 750 families with at least two siblings who have experienced major depression.

    Study: Molecular Genetics of Schizophrenia
    The study will create a DNA collection to permit qualified scientists to search for schizophrenia-related genes. We need 400 families with at least two siblings who have experienced schizophrenia.

    Consortium on the Genetics of Schizphrenia (COGS) Top Rated
    The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has joined forces with medical schools across the country including Harvard, UCSD, UCLA, Mount Sinai, Univ. of Pennsylvania, Univ. of Washington, and the Univ. of Colorado. Through this collaborative research project we hope to learn more about the genetic basis of schizophrenia. Understanding the genetic components of schizophrenia is crucial to finding out about the risk factors, and heritability of this illness. It may also help us to create more effective treatments, and hopefully, someday, find a cure. We will not ask you to change in medications in any way. The study lasts about 2 half-days. Each participant will be paid for all time spent participating in the study. For more information please go to: www.schizophreniaresearch.net
