T32 Post-Doctoral Training Program Psychosis: A Convergent Neuroscience Perspective

The focus of the Neurodevelopment and Psychosis Research Training Program is to integrate basic and clinical neuroscience research in a cohesive effort to elucidate neural substrates of psychosis. Converging multidisciplinary approaches by collaborating laboratories at the University of Pennsylvania aim to contribute a new understanding of the symptoms, pathophysiology, and etiology of psychosis. Research opportunities in Brain Phenotypes, Neurogenetics, Cellular-Molecular and Computation aim at enhancing skills in translational neuroscience research. A developmental perspective is an emphasis in human and animal studies. Trainees benefit from the rich and stimulating academic environment at Penn and CHOP in pursuing innovative research in preparation for an academic career.
