Location: NIH Natcher Conference Center, NIH Campus

Description: The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) convened the eighth Professional Coalition for Research Progress (Coalition) Meeting which served as an opportunity for representatives from professional organizations with an interest in NIMH research to hear about advances in mental health research, current and new research directions, and strategies for NIMH.

Society for Neuroscience 2015 Symposium Brain Stimulation Based Neural Circuit Modeling: Linking levels of analysis


Location: Fairmont, Chicago

Description: This symposium will bring together basic neuroscientists, computational modelers, and clinical investigators to discuss how to integrate large-scale computational modeling with translational neuroscience, in order to increase our understanding of how to improve the rhythmic interactions of networks by non-surgical brain stimulation and enhance cognitive capabilities in clinical disorders.

Alliance for Research Progress - February 7, 2014 Meeting


Location: Rockville, Maryland

Description: Summary for the February 2014 meeting of the Alliance for Research Progress.

Using Stem Cells for Biological and Therapeutics Discovery in Mental Illness


Location: Bethesda, Maryland

Description: On April 24-25, 2012, scientists from academia, government and the private sector met to discuss advances and challenges in using patient-derived reprogrammed cells, such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and induced neuronal cells (iNCs), to identify molecular, cellular, and developmental alterations relevant to mental illnesses and possible utility in diagnostics and drug development.

Integrating Neuroscience, Developmental Psychopathology, and Preventive Interventions: Critical Questions for the Next Generation of Transformative Research


Location: Denver, Colorado

Description: In conjunction with the 18th annual conference of the Society for Prevention Research, NIMH held a one-day, pre-conference workshop. The goal of the meeting was to identify strategies to advance prevention science research for mental disorders through the integration of basic science, neurodevelopment research, and intervention expertise.

Sponsors: National Institute of Mental Health

Child and Adolescent Effectiveness Research in Clinical Practice and Community Settings: Needs, Challenges, and Opportunities


Location: Washington, D.C.

Description: This workshop provided a forum for reviewing accomplishments and challenges in conducting effectiveness research in practice and other community settings and served as an opportunity for informally discussing promising approaches to further research. The focus of the meeting was on testing the effectiveness of treatment interventions for children and adolescents when delivered in clinical practice and other community settings, such as schools.
