Dr. Carpenter, a leading researcher, world authority on schizophrenia, and chair of the Psychosis Work Group for DSM-5 will explain how a “disease” differs from a “clinical syndrome.” He will discuss how the parsing of the category “schizophrenia” in terms of its clinical manifestations is key to advancing understanding of causes and the discovery of new therapies.
