Neuroscience podcast: schizophrenia—bridging the divide between lab and clinic

Schizophrenia affects more than 21 million people worldwide. UQ Queensland Brain Institute neuroscientists are bridging the gap between lab research and clinical care.

In a calendar full of awareness weeks and days, the need for a Schizophrenia Awareness Week (17–23 May, 2016) remains paramount.  Despite affecting more than 21 million people worldwide, schizophrenia is one of the most misunderstood disorders in the broader community, and one of the most puzzling for neuroscientists.  QBI’s Dr James Kesby recently received a $300,000 Advance Queensland Research Fellowship to research how the disorder develops, but also to bridge the divide between the laboratory and the clinic.
