CEDAR is affiliated with the Psychosis Research Program (PRP) housed at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center (MMHC) and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC). The PRP was formally known as the Commonwealth Research Center (CRC). The CRC was founded in 1988 by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health (DMH) to address the need for cutting edge biological and treatment research on schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders. The CRC has been a “Center of Excellence in Clinical Neuroscience and Psychopharmacological Research” funded by the DMH since 1993. Now known as the PRP, the PRP is administered by the BIDMC Dept of Psychiatry, a teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School. The PRP is remembered by our previous director Larry J. Seidman, Ph.D. who had been the director since 2002. We are now led by Dr. William Stone Ph.D.
