Schizophrenia Research Unit

The Ingham Institute Schizophrenia Research Unitconducts research into the causes of, and better treatments for patients suffering from schizophrenia and other major mental disorders.

The Unit’s primary academic partner is the School of Psychiatry, UNSW Australia with major collaborative links with a range of other research groups, including the Macquarie Centre for Cognitive Science, (Macquarie University), the Priority Centre for Brain & Mental Health Research (University of Newcastle), Brain and Mind Research Institute, (University of Sydney) and the Laboratory for Neuro Imaging (University of California, Los Angeles).

A major focus for the group has been recruitment of help-seeking young people for the ‘Minds in Transition’ study that aims to identify the neurocognitive correlates of transition to psychosis, supported by a five year NHMRC project grant.
