Monday, December 19, 2011 - Our incredible special guest is Dr. Christopher Ross, PI for the HSG sponsored PREQUEL Coenzyme Q10 study. Dr. Ross is Professor of Psychiatry, Neurology and Neurosciences at Johns Hopkins. In their study of neuropsychiatric disorders, Dr. Ross and his research team focus on Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease, and use insights from these disorders to approach more complex diseases such as schizophrenia. They use biophysical and biochemical techniques, cell models, and transgenic mouse models to understand disease processes and provide targets for development of rational therapeutics. Ultimately, the neurobiologic study of schizophrenia many help illuminate normal thought, perception and emotion – and help us understand the biology of human nature itself.

We as a community have many questions relating to CAG and the current diagnostic criteria at the COE's as well as clinical studies and trials. We have so many questions...but not enough answers!
