Consortium on the Genetics of Schizphrenia (COGS)

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:
