It is axiomatic that the diversity and ingenuity of strategies in the study of schizophrenia bear testimony to the complexity of this disorder. Accordingly, the opportunity for investigators of diverse interests to share their latest findings and be informed of developments in key areas of science is critical to advance our understanding of schizophrenia. Nearly 700 investigators from around the world gathered at Warm Springs, Va, to present their data at the Fifth International Congress on Schizophrenia Research (April 8-12, 1995). This 5-day conference, held every other year alternating with the European Winter Workshop on Schizophrenia, is co-organized by S. Charles Schulz, MD, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, and Carol Tamminga, MD, Maryland Psychiatric Research Center, University of Maryland at Baltimore. Drs Schulz and Tamminga first held the Congress in 1987 in Clearwater, Fla, with 170 investigators presenting. The Congress has flourished since then and is now the largest research meeting devoted solely to schizophrenia. The Congress organizers, the program coordinator (Jeffrey Lieberman, MD, Hillside Hospital, Glen Oaks, NY), and the Congress coordinator (Susan Nusbaum, Maryland Psychiatric Research Center) are congratulated on the success of this event and its contribution to fostering initiatives and collaborations within schizophrenia research.
