Early Detection and Prevention of Psychotic Disorders: Ready for “Prime Time” ?

Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 2:00 pm EST
Meet the Scientist - February 2019

Research suggesting significantly better outcomes in schizophrenia when it is treated early has led to efforts to provide coordinated, multispecialty care as soon as possible to individuals who experience a first episode of psychosis. The next advance with a potentially game-changing impact will be the development of reliable means of identifying and treating those at high risk prior to a first psychotic episode. I will discuss efforts to develop more precise diagnostic measures using biomarkers and innovative treatments for preventive intervention, research that could lead disease-modifying treatments.
