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 level of career development in areas of high priority to the division. The primary goal of the program is to ensure that sufficient numbers of highly trained, independent investigators will be available to address the complexities of developmental psychopathology that inform the trajectories and mechanisms of mental disorders.

Areas of Emphasis
- Training researchers to lead/participate in multidisciplinary investigations on the neurobehavioral mechanisms and developmental trajectories of mental disorders.
- Equipping investigators with the knowledge to develop innovative therapeutic interventions for childhood mental disorders.
- Training investigators to develop innovative preventive strategies utilizing known risk and protective factors.
