The Translational Review of Mood and Addictive Disorders course will provide a wide-ranging overview of basic, translational and clinical research in mood and addiction. In clinical practice, mood and addiction disorders are two of the most prevalent psychiatric conditions with a high rate of illness morbidity and comorbidity. Available treatments, however, often fall short of remission or recovery mainly due to heterogeneous nature of the disease presentation. We can better personalize or individualize treatments through translational research in psychiatry.

Intended Audience
This course is targeted to clinicians and scientists (i.e. MDs and PhDs), with a particular emphasis on informing the next generation of investigators in mood and addiction psychiatry. Poster sessions will enable participants to share new research and engage with faculty for personalized feedback on optimizing the translational impact of their work.
