We have begun a new Training  program in 2014.

Summary of the proposed program:  Across India and Egypt, we will train motivated individuals, who will conduct research into novel, effective pharmacological interventions for SZ. We will seek trainees in psychiatry and allied specialties, while also seeking exceptional medical students.  We will focus on universities and particularly medical schools.  Inculcating a research ethos in these settings will not only aid individual researchers; it will also have a 'multiplier effect' by exposing students to well-trained and highly motivated faculty.  Recognizing the aspirations of new investigators and clinical practitioners in developing countries, we will provide an array of opportunities for potential trainees, including an ethics track and a track for laboratory-based training.  The research will build on our ongoing funded programs.  We will maximize local resources and practices to ensure sustainability and increase impact.
