- 2016 Webinar Series on Mental Health Disparities and Global Mental Health Research
The Office for Research on Disparities and Global Mental Health (ORDGMH) organized a series of webinars on mental health disparities and global mental health from May through August 2016.
- Research on Early Identification and Linkage to Services for ASD: NIMH ASD Prevention, Early Detection, Engagement and Services Research Network
• Bethesda, MD
The NIMH Services Research and Clinical Epidemiology Branch convened a one-day meeting with researchers from the NIMH Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Prevention, Early Detection, Engagement and Services (ASD PEDS) Research Network to discuss multiple strategies for universal ASD screening and early referral to services for toddlers ages 0-3.
- Transcranial Electrical Stimulation: Mechanisms, Technology and Therapeutic Applications
― • Bethesda, Maryland
This one and a half day workshop will focus on critically assessing the use and potential of noninvasive neuromodulation techniques (specifically tDCS, tACS, and tRNS), and will identify research needs for optimizing protocols and further developing therapeutic applications.
- NIMH Conference on Mental Health Services Research: Harnessing Science to Strengthen the Public Health Impact
NIMH hosted the 23rd Conference on Mental Health Services Research (MHSR) with the theme, Harnessing Science to Strengthen the Public Health Impact. The MHSR meeting is the nation’s premier mental health services research conference.
- 2016 Autism Centers of Excellence (ACE) Investigator Meeting
― • Bethesda, MD
Extramural investigators from the 3 centers and 9 networks that comprise the NIH Autism Centers of Excellence (ACE) Program, convened for their annual meeting to provide ACE investigators an opportunity to share the progress of their respective centers and networks, and to discuss current challenges and promising innovations in the field of autism spectrum disorder research.
- Global HIV-1 CSF Escape Consortium
• Bethesda, MD
The NIMH Division of AIDS Research, with support from the NIH Office of AIDS Research, sponsored a meeting to establish a Global HIV-1 CSF Escape Consortium. Despite stable and successful control of HIV with Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) in the periphery, some patients still have detectable HIV virus in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), termed “CSF escape.” Meeting participants discussed prevalence rates, causes, and key scientific research priorities pertaining to HIV-1 CSF escape.
- Mechanisms Underlying Suicide Risk: Integrating RDoC to Inform Novel and Personalized Intervention Research
― • Bethesda, MD
The Division of Translational Research and the Division of Services and Intervention Research, NIMH, sponsored a workshop to review current themes in suicide research and to consider how research approaches that are consistent with the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) framework may provide new insight into underlying mechanisms.
- Analyzing and Using RDoC Data in Your Research
On May 10, 2016 the NIMH Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) Unit hosted a webinar about using and analyzing RDoC data in research.
- Reducing the Incidence of Suicide in Indigenous Groups - Strengths United through Networks (RISING SUN): Workshop 2
― • Tromsø, Norway
On May 9-10 2016, the NIMH Office for Research on Disparities and Global Mental Health (ORDGMH), together with the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, convened the second workshop of an initiative aimed at suicide prevention among indigenous people in the circumpolar Arctic.
- Society for Neuroscience 2015 Symposium Brain Stimulation Based Neural Circuit Modeling: Linking levels of analysis
• Fairmont, Chicago
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.
