The RxIT Interview with Sir Robin Murray. October 12, 2022.
About this Event: Robin Murray is one of the most influential researchers on schizophrenia. Find out why he now believes the diagnosis should be retired. In March of 2017, Robin Murray published “Mistakes I Have Made in My Research Career” in Schizophrenia Bulletin. In it, he wrote about the evolution of his thinking on the concept of schizophrenia, including problems with the neurodevelopmental model as well as the negative effects antipsychotic medication has on the brain. “The truth was that my preconceptions… had made me blind to the influence of the social environment.” Professor Murray, who has stepped down from many of his research positions, continues to see patients with whom he has established life-long relationships. The RxIT Interview will ask about his journey in psychiatry from a predominantly psychosocial orientation to a medical one and back again. We will ask his advice for those who might follow.
