Why are we conducting Connex?    Schizophrenia is a condition that negatively affects people's mental health in different ways. For example, it can affect a person's mood or behavior. It can also affect the way a person thinks, which includes their memory and how they process information. Doctor's call this "cognitive impairment." Examples include struggling to remember where you put something or finding it difficult to concentrate on a book or a movie. There are no approved treatments for cognitive impairment associated with schizophrenia. As a result, researchers are conducting CONNEX to learn if an investigational drug can affect cognition in people with Schizophrenia. 


To qualify for CONNEX, you must meet certain criteria.

We are looking for approximately 1,800 adults who:

  1. Are 18-50 years of age (at the time of joining the study)

  4. Are experiencing difficulty remembering things, staying focused on tasks or conversations, or figuring out how to do something. 
  5. Are able to attend certain study visits with a friend or family member who they speak to regularly (this person will be their "study partner"

There are additional requirements that potential study participants must meet in order to qualify for the study.
