The Taylor Family Institute for Innovative Psychiatric Research

Andrew and Barbara Taylor and the Crawford Taylor Foundation make a $20 million gift to the Department of Psychiatry for the establishment of the Taylor Family Institute for Innovative Psychiatric Research. The purpose of the Institute is to facilitate the development of new and more effective treatments for psychiatric disorders. Although research related to neurosteroids is the initial focus for scientists associated with the Institute, the Taylor family’s donation will also be used to support creative, cutting-edge psychiatric brain research for the foreseeable future. The first director of the Taylor Family Institute is Charles F. Zorumski, MD.
