Date of workshop: Thursday 19 October, 2023

Location: Wellcome's offices, London

This workshop is for clinicians and neuroscientists at all career stages from institutions based in the UK.

About the workshop 

Wellcome’s vision is a world in which no one is held back by mental health problems. To achieve this, we want to create a step-change in early intervention for anxiety, depression and psychosis.

We are pursuing a better understanding of how the brain, body, and environment interact in the development and resolution of depression, anxiety, and psychosis.

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the best options, gaps and opportunities to leverage neuroscience to help generate evidence needed to resolve anxiety, depression, and psychosis.

The discussions and presentations will focus mainly on concepts and methods from computational neuroscience, computational psychiatry and cellular and animal models for mental health.

The workshop will also explore gaps and opportunities for the involvement of people with lived experience in neuroscience and mental health.

We invite neuroscientists, clinicians and lived experience experts to discuss their research, including challenges in addressing translational questions. Our aim is to foster meaningful and productive discussions between delegates throughout the day.

The format of the workshop will support networking to create partnerships between scientists working across fields with complementary approaches.
