Their research was jointly funded by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Prof. Tamar Peretz, Hadassah's interim Director General, congratulated both teams on their successful research and emphasized the integral role of Hadassah's Biological Psychiatry Laboratory in innovative psychiatric research at Hadassah.
