Stanley Lab: Lab information




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

Fellow’s level of post-graduate training. The program will

also cover the cost of training, research materials,

transportation and health insurance for the post-doctoral


Review a list of our

laboratory staff.

The preceptors who are currently

participating in the program, in addition to Dr. Robert Yolken,

Director, are:

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

request three letters of recommendation that will need to be sent

directly to us. As soon as your completed application and the

three letters of recommendation are received, they will be

forwarded to the Stanley Review Committee. The Committee will

meet to determine which applicants they want to interview for the

position. As soon as this occurs you will be contacted by mail.

Completed applications should be sent to:
