The mission of the SRF is to help in the search for causes, treatments, and understanding of the devastating disease of schizophrenia. Our goal is to foster collaboration among researchers by providing an international online forum where ideas, research news, and data can be presented and discussed. The website is intended to bring together scientists working specifically on schizophrenia, scientists researching related diseases, and basic scientists whose work can shed light on these diseases. In this way, we hope that the Schizophrenia Research Forum will be a catalyst for creative thinking in the quest to understand a deeply complex disease.
