Early detection of psychotic disorders has recently become a focus for research and clinical development, leading to a major conceptual shift in psychiatry, and to the development of a preventive approach to psychiatric disorders. Based on emerging evidence that treatment delay has a negative impact on outcome, specialized programs to reduce the duration of untreated psychosis and develop specifically adapted treatments have been initiated worldwide. To this effect, it is essential to understand the underlying causes and mechanisms in order to identify key biomarkers profiles, and to develop novel therapeutic and preventive measures based on the etio-pathophysiology.

In this symposium, a panel of distinguished leaders in the field will present the state of the art of schizophrenia research with focus on pathophysiological mechanisms, genetic and environmental risk factors and their interaction during neurodevelopment. Dialogs between academia and industry on innovative solutions to therapeutic targets will contribute to shape the perspectives on preventive measures.
