Dr. Taylor's translational and clinical research program focuses on preventing disorders like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder with psychotic features. He is particularly interested in the roles that oxidative stress and neuroinflammation play in psychosis symptom progression in youth.
Dr. Barzilay aims to understand what drives variability in the development of brain and behavior of youths growing up under stress. He studies biological and environmental mechanisms leading to suicidal behavior, using big datasets of diverse genotyped youths with deep phenotyping of environment.
In advancing intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) research for more than 29 years, the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC) wholeheartedly embraces today’s novel concepts and technologies to discover the causes of IDD and uses this knowledge to improve outcomes for affected people.
Dr. Edgar has more than 25 years of experience using non-invasive imaging to study brain function and structure in psychiatric and neurological patient populations. His most recent research focuses on studying brain structure and function maturation processes.
Dr. Anderson’s research interests focus on the molecular and cellular mechanisms that govern the development of the mammalian forebrain. In his research on the development of the cerebral cortex, he is particularly interested in understanding the molecular underpinnings behind the fate determination and axon targeting of subclasses of GABAergic interneurons implicated in the neuropathology of schizophrenia.
