Dr. Donna Lang began her academic endeavors as an undergraduate student in botany and biopsychology at the University of Victoria.  At that time she began her first forays into brain research in animal models of hippocampal injuries in rats. After to moving to Vancouver, Donna met Dr. Bill Honer while working as a research assistant in the Division of Immunology at the Jack Bell Research Pavilion in 1994. By 1995 Bill had convinced her that she would be happier pursuing graduate studies and that neuroimaging in schizophrenia was an area that needed focussed attention.  Donna continued focusing her attention on the neuroimaging of schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders through her post-doctoral training as a Michael Smith Fellow with Dr. Alex Mackay in the Department of Radioogy, where she has remained ensconced as an Assistant Professor. After 17 years, she is still focused on the neuroimaging of schizophrenia and other related psychotic disorders.
