The theme of the congress “Neuroscience Discoveries and Translation to Clinical Practice” was chosen to address two major challenges plaguing the field of mental health i.e. slow progress in new discoveries and barriers to evidence based application of new discoveries in day to day clinical practice to improve patient care.
The congress will be structured to include a neuroscience discovery track and a clinical track. Within each track, plenaries, round table debates, workshops, symposia and short oral presentation sessions will address cutting edge topics. Priority will be given to symposia and workshop proposals that report on new methods and tools in biological psychiatry and psychopharmacology and their translational aspects.
