International Schizophrenia Consortium (ISC)


The International Schizophrenia Consortium (ISC) was established to promote rapid progress towards the identification of genetic causes underlying schizophrenia.

The ISC is comprised of investigators from the University of Aberdeen, Trinity College Dublin, Cardiff University, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Southern California, Massachusetts General Hospital, the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, the Karolinska Institutet, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and University College London.

Research

We are currently engaged in a genome-wide survey of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and copy number variants (CNVs) in thousands of individuals with and without schizophrenia.
