Sarah Turoff Endowed Chair in Schizophrenia Research

​The first-ever Endowed Research Chair at SU's Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is situated in the Department of Psychiatry. Brain diseases are major contributors to the disease burden globally and nationally and schizophrenia makes up a substantial component. It is a puzzling and complex disorder, impacting negatively upon individuals, families and society. The Chair will increase the visibility of schizophrenia research in the department and enhance research opportunities for staff and students.
