Mount Sinai Research Collaboration Explores Neurodevelopmental Data and Early Brain Development of Schizophrenia


"The Genesis of Schizophrenia: An Origin Story” by Mount Sinai researcher Rebecca Birnbaum, MD, and Daniel Weinberger, MD, Director and CEO of the Lieber Institute for Brain Development (LIBD) on the Johns Hopkins medical campus, is featured on The American Journal of Psychiatry cover, highlighting the classic neurodevelopmental model of schizophrenia, from a current genetics perspective.
