Lieber Center for Schizophrenia Research and Treatment
The Lieber Center for Schizophrenia Research was established in 1999 as a modern scientific multidisciplinary schizophrenia research program. In 2007 it was renamed the Lieber Center for Schizophrenia Research and Treatment, with the opening of a comprehensive psychiatric care clinic, The Lieber Recovery and Rehabilitation Clinic at Columbia Doctors Midtown. Generous support from Connie and Stephen Lieber helped establish the Center’s infrastructure and to leverage additional support from the National Institutes of Health, including two Silvio Conte Centers focused on schizophrenia research, and multiple foundation grants. The Lieber Center brings together basic scientists and clinical researchers to focus synergistically on understanding the etiology of schizophrenia and its underlying developmental, molecular, and circuit mechanisms, as well on the discovery and development of new and improved treatments.
