Research Training and Career Development Program


The Research Training and Career Development Program supports research training at the pre-doctoral, post-doctoral, and early investigator levels of career development in areas relevant to the focus of the Division. These include adult psychopathology and psychosocial interventions, clinical neuroscience, geriatrics, translational research focusing on adults, and experimental therapeutics and treatment mechanisms related to mental illness. The primary goal of this office is to ensure that sufficient numbers of highly trained, independent investigators will be available to address the complexities of adult psychopathology and translational research.
