If resources were not limited, what research projects would you pursue?
Neurodevelopmental risk factors of schizophrenia, and how to reduce mortality in schizophrenia
What is your leading hypothesis?
Schizophrenia may originate prenatally, and
what are the appropriate strategy to reduce mortality in schizophrenia
What piece of missing evidence would help prove it?
Modelling of incidence, prevalence and mortality of schizophrenia, and
Appropriate data on neurodevelopemtal risk factors of schizophrenia
What is your fallback position?
limited resources for research on mortality and risk factors
