The Schizophrenia International Research Society (SIRS) has awarded a travel fellowship award to Maria Ferrara, MD, Postdoctoral Associate at the Program for Specialized Treatment Early in Psychosis (STEP) at Yale.

The award supported Ferrara’s attendance and presentation at the society's biennial meeting April 4-8 in Florence, Italy.

The society received over 342 applications for the competitive travel award.

Ferrara presented results from two studies, one conducted in her hometown Modena (Italy) and one conducted at Yale, using a new statistical strategy to interpret data from the Early Detection of Psychosis TIPS study.

SIRS brings together researchers from around the world to share advances and collaborate on schizophrenia research, promote research findings to the scientific community and public, and increase the public’s understanding of the impact of schizophrenia on people, families, and society.
