Lewy Body Dementia Association
Nearly 400 Lewy Body Dementia caregivers listened in on a scientific Webinar on dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) aimed at physicians and researchers, hosted by the Alzheimer Research Forum. Before and after the event LBD caregivers submitted over 100 questions on LBD clinical care to the panelists, which included Dr. Ian McKeith, Dr. James Galvin and Dr. James Leverenz who are members of LBDA’s Scientific Advisory Council. Due to the tremendous caregiver response, Alzforum turned to LBDA to provide answers to a broad assortment of caregiver questions.

Schizophrenia Research Forum
The mission of the Schizophrenia Research Forum (SRF) is to advance research in schizophrenia and related diseases. Although free and open for all to read, the site is intended primarily for scientists. SRF provides up-to-date news and analysis of current research relevant to schizophrenia. The website also centralizes web-based resources and information for both researchers and others interested in an overview of the field. The SRF Papers database contains relevant research citations gathered from PubMed, and comments from researchers in the field. Users can also participate in moderated live discussions and interact via the Current Hypotheses and Idea Lab sections of the site.
