Where are new schizophrenia drugs? Experts convene to explore genetic and epigenetic solutions

NEW YORK, March 4, 2011 Despite significant investment in research and development by pharmaceutical companies, the last decade has seen a marked decline in the number of drugs developed and approved for schizophrenia. A multi-day symposium at the New York Academy of Sciences on Wednesday, March 9 Friday, March 11 will convene world-leading experts in clinical, translational, and basic neuroscience to address this problem by examining novel, state-of-the-art approaches to schizophrenia drug development.

More than 20 speakers will describe a variety of promising approaches to developing therapies, including using genetic studies to identify new targets, improving animal models, targeting the epigenome, identifying new small molecule targets, and understanding the functioning of neural circuits.
