  • International team sheds new light on biology underlying schizophrenia

    As part of a multinational, collaborative effort, researchers from Keck Medicine of USC have helped identify more than 100 locations in the human genome associated with the risk of developing schizophrenia. In what is the largest genomic study published on any psychiatric disorder to date, the findings, which are published online in Nature, point to biological mechanisms and pathways that may underlie schizophrenia. These pathways could lead to new approaches to treating the disorder, which has seen little innovation in drug development in more than 60 years.

  • USC, UCLA and UCSF put their heads together to find stem cell-based cures for craniofacial defects

    One in every 2,000 babies is born with a skull that can’t grow normally. Various sections of these babies’ skulls are fused together at joints called sutures, constricting the developing brain and disrupting vision, sleep, eating and IQ. For these young patients, risky skull-expanding surgeries become an almost annual event. Now, three leading universities for stem cell research — the University of Southern California (USC); the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA); and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) — have joined forces to find better solutions for these and other patients with craniofacial defects.
