Stanley Medical Research Institute: T. gondii and schizophrenia

To: All researchers interested in Toxoplasma gondii

The Stanley Medical Research Institute (SMRI) is interested in the possible etiological relationship between T. gondii and schizophrenia, and we are supporting multiple research projects on this relationship. We have therefore created a section on our website summarizing past and present research that may be relevant; this can be accessed at (click on Laboratory of Developmental Neurovirology, then on Toxoplasmosis–Schizophrenia Research, then on the section you wish to view). We are applying for permission to make many of the most important papers available in PDF format. We welcome corrections and suggestions for this section and will keep it updated.

Periodically, SMRI will issue requests for proposals (RFPs) for specific research projects; such RFPs will be advertised in this section of the SMRI website. Investigators are free to contact either Dr. Torrey or Dr. Yolken regarding specific questions or ideas in this area.

E. Fuller Torrey, M.D.

Robert H. Yolken, M.D.
