The mission of the Lieber Institute for Brain Development is to translate the understanding of basic genetic and molecular mechanisms of schizophrenia and related developmental brain disorders into clinical advances that change the lives of affected individuals.
The Lieber Institute for Brain Development is a center for interdisciplinary, translational neuroscience research structured around three divisions: Basic Sciences, Clinical Sciences, and Drug Discovery. The basic research focuses on central neurodevelopmental questions related to building a human brain from the first cells.
Translating scientific insight into meaningful clinical progress based on causes, not symptoms, is a daunting challenge. The Institute pursues this goal by emphasizing teamwork, deliverables, and milestones alongside innovation, risk-taking,
and novelty. – less
