Australian Schizophrenia Research Bank

Launched in 2007, the Australian Schizophrenia Research Bank ASRB collects and links genetic, clinical, neuropsychological and brain imaging information from over 1,000 individuals with schizophrenia and healthy controls. Data from this unique resource is particularly important to support schizophrenia-related studies conducted by scientists who do not have the capacity to collect their own data on such a large scale.

The Australian Schizophrenia Research Bank is the biggest research program of its type ever undertaken in Australia. The volunteers who participate in this project will be key contributors to a research resource which may provide researchers with a unique breakthrough.

The primary aim of the Schizophrenia Research Bank is to facilitate research by:

  • Collecting, storing and providing comprehensive, cross-referenced clinical, neuropsychological, genetic and brain imaging data from people with schizophrenia and healthy controls.

Along with the Schizophrenia Research Institute, the Australian Schizophrenia Research Bank, was relocated to NeuRA’s Margarete Ainsworth building in Randwick in 2015.
