The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Division of Translational Research is hosting a workshop on the topic of novel target discovery and psychosocial intervention development. The workshop will be held February 24 to February 25, 2020, at the NIH Neuroscience Center in Bethesda, MD.
For those who cannot attend in person, the workshop will also be available to stream via webcast.
The goal of the workshop is to accelerate research that improves nonpharmaceutical interventions. These include cognitive, behavioral, and psychosocial approaches. “Despite advances in basic neuroscience and basic behavioral science,” says NIMH, “there is still a major need for more effective treatments for many people living with mental illness.”
Participants at the workshop are expected to represent a range of intervention and target types.
