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. http://depressiongenetics.med.upenn.edu -

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, they hope to learn more about the genetic basis of schizophrenia.
They have completed Phase I of the COGS study and have now begun Phase II.Phase II is now focus on enrolling 2,000 additional patients with schizophrenia and 1,000 community comparison subjects. http://www.schizophreniaresearch.net -
