Major Breakthrough in Schizophrenia Research

I am very pleased to announce a major research breakthrough.

Professor Cyndi Shannon Weickert has discovered immune cells in greater amounts in the brains of some people with schizophrenia, challenging a long-held belief that immune cells were independent from the brain pathology in psychotic illnesses.

This discovery has the potential to transform global schizophrenia research, and opens new avenues for developing targeted immune cell therapies. This is Australian research innovation at work, that your gifts helped make happen.

Below I have included links to two of the major news stories that accompanied this announcement. You’re also invited to click on the video below (and scroll to the bottom of the page) to watch the short film we made explaining the breakthrough.

We are so thankful for your loyal support of our Australian medical research institute. If you would like to help move this breakthrough into a cure, please click ‘Donate Online’ to make a secure donation.

Yours Sincerely,
