The 28th Annual Pittsburgh Schizophrenia Conference is being held on Friday, Dec. 9 at the Sheraton Station Square. This conference is the longest running scientific meeting devoted to exploring the latest research findings related to schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. Each year, internationally recognized experts provide comprehensive reviews of advances in their areas and emphasize the clinical relevance of the research.
This year's meeting will cover a range of topics, including the neurophysiology of schizophrenia as well as the the significance of inflammation and the role of pharmacogenetics in the treatment of schizophrenia. It will also examine the possible connection between infection, cognitive functioning and schizophrenia.
Presentations by the faculty awarded the two 2011 Pittsburgh Schizophrenia Conference Awards and the Gerard Hogarty Research Excellence Prize will also take place during the meeting. In addition, there will be a panel addressing issues related to the closing of a state hospital.
