NEUROVIROLOGY LABORATORY AT
THE JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE
The overall goal of the Laboratory is to
develop a training and research program devoted to the
elucidation of the role of infection and immunity in the etiology
of schizophrenia and bipolar disorders. Post-doctoral fellows in
the Stanley Neurovirology Laboratory Fellowship Program will have
the opportunity to receive training and perform research in the
areas of molecular biology directed at studies in these areas.
Studies will be performed in collaboration with faculty members
from different Departments at the Johns Hopkins School of
Medicine. The program will provide stipends based on the
Fellows level of post-graduate training. The program will
also cover the cost of training, research materials,
transportation and health insurance for the post-doctoral
The preceptors who are currently
participating in the program, in addition to Dr. Robert Yolken,
- Dr. Christopher
Ross– Psychiatry/Molecular Genetics
Raphael Viscidi– Molecular Virology
- Dr. Noel
Maree Webster– Neuropathology
Lorraine Brando– Virology/Cell Culture
- Dr. E.
Fuller Torrey– Psychiatric Epidemiology
All of the preceptors are members of the
faculty of Johns Hopkins except for Drs. Torrey and Webster, who are at the
Stanley Foundation Research Programs in Bethesda, MD.
The specific nature of the research and
training program will be tailored to meet the needs of the
individual fellows. It is expected that some of the Fellows will
spend time in the laboratory of several of the preceptors while
others will want to work with a single preceptor. Research can
cover a wide range of areas provided that the work is directed at
the principal research goals of the laboratory.
The Fellowships will normally be
available for three years, pending satisfactory review at the end
of each year. Longer periods of Fellowship support may be made
available in some cases.
An application may be obtained by writing
or calling the address/phone numbers below. The application will
