The mission of the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute is to reduce the burden of serious mental illness through research. Stanley Center researchers focus on schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and other neuropsychiatric disorders. Situated within the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, the Stanley Center aims to exploit the most advanced technologies for human genetic analysis to study these psychiatric disorders in order to understand disease mechanisms, identify potential biomarkers, and ignite needed progress in therapeutics.
Launched in 2007 by a $100 million commitment from the Stanley Medical Research Institute, the Stanley Center has extensive collaborations with investigators at MIT, Harvard, and the Harvard-affiliated hospitals as well as with investigators around the world.
