Collaborative team to study novel treatment for schizophrenia

Researchers at Marquette University, Concordia University and Rogers Memorial Hospital received a one-year, $50,000 grant from the Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeast Wisconsin to study possible new pharmaceutical treatments for schizophrenia.

M. Behnam Ghasemzadeh, associate professor of biomedical sciences at Marquette University, is the primary investigator of the grant. Co-primary investigators are Dan Sem, Concordia University; Dr. Kambiz Pahlavan, Rogers Memorial Hospital; and Joe McGraw, Concordia University.

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental disorder for which there is a lack of new and effective medication. The researchers participating in this pilot study have identified a novel signaling mechanism in the brain that will be explored for treatment of schizophrenia symptoms. The long-term goal of this proposal is to develop drug candidates for clinical testing.
