The Psychiatry Research Team

The KU Wichita Center for Clinical Research is a research group dedicated to determining the safety and optimal dosing of significant new medications to relieve the burden of mental illness on patients and families. This research is aimed at testing novel mechanism of action drugs and other biological therapies for the most serious neuropsychiatric illness including major depression, Alzheimer's disease, and schizophrenia. These treatments aim to modify the underlying course of the illness and studies typically include populations that are not responsive to usual therapies. 

In the 2014-2015 academic year, this work involved more than $700,000 in external funding, including more than $240,000 in NIH/NIMH funding.
