Neuropsychiatric disorders are a leading cause of disability and result in a tremendous toll on society. We are assembling expert investigators to identify key issues that must be addressed in order for us to move forward from risk factors, genes, circuits, and mechanisms to effective therapies. Physicians, scientists, NIH leaders, pharmaceutical industry experts, patients, and patient advocacy groups will come together to identify new research paths and priorities for advancing promising translational research. Proceedings will be published in Science Translational Medicine. Breakfast and a boxed lunch will be provided on the first day. Breakfast, only, will be provided the second day. Registration (FREE) is required due to the meals and limited seating.
