Boston: Searching for Candidate Genetic Defects for Schizophrenia Using the Latest Genetic Technology

Boston VA Healthcare Systems and Amgen

Research study volunteers needed!!!


We are looking for families with THREE or more members diagnosed with schizophrenia or related disorders to participate in this research study. We are interested in interviewing the individuals who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia as well as several healthy family members.


The purpose of this study is to learn more about the role of genes in causing schizophrenia.


Structured clinical interview, neurological testing, and a blood draw

Study participation may take one or two visits, but we will work with your schedule.


The study will take place in Boston at the Brockton or Jamaica Plain Veterans Affairs Hospital.

We will assist with travel when possible. If these locations are not convenient, home visits are also an option.


You may receive $130 upon completion of this study.
