Cardiff University is undertaking genetic research of large cohorts of patients with treatment-resistant schizophrenia (TRS), which is the most disabling form of the illness. The aim is to examine the genetic underpinnings of TRS using a wide variety of genetic techniques. The research team already have data from over 13,000 patient and used data from the Cambridge BioResource as controls for comparison. 

Participation: For this study we provided deidentified data from 1098 volunteers from the Cambridge BioResource.

Organisation: This study is organised by Dr James Walters from the Cardiff University.
