Professional Coalition for Research Progress Annual Meeting
When: April 13, 2011
Where: Washington, DC
Institute: National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)
NIMH convened the seventh annual Professional Coalition for Research Progress meeting in April. The Coalition consists of representatives from professional organizations that have an interest in NIMH research. The meeting served as an opportunity for NIMH to share information about research advances, current and new directions for NIMH, and potential future strategies.
The meeting was structured as a dialogue and allowed time for representatives to share their views on NIMH research or other NIMH-related issues. Attendees heard presentations from National Advisory Mental Health Council Member Gregory E. Simon on the "Mental Health Research Network"; Pamela Collins on "Grand Challenges in Global Mental Health"; and Raquel E. Gur on the developmental genomics project.
