UI Genetics Study Invites People With Schizophrenia
People ages 18 and older with schizophrenia are invited to participate in a University of Iowa Health Care study that is searching for genes that cause this brain disease. By identifying these genes, experts hope to develop better treatments for schizophrenia.
Participants will give a blood sample and undergo a clinical interview during one visit to UI Hospitals and Clinics or a convenient site statewide. The visit will last approximately four hours. Compensation is available.
For more information, contact Nancy Hale, study coordinator in psychiatry, at 319-335-9238 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
University of Iowa Health Care describes the partnership between the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and UI Hospitals and Clinics and the patient care, medical education and research programs and services they provide. Visit UI Health Care online at http://www.uihealthcare.com.
