Workshop Objectives

  • Discuss the most promising, and practical, arenas in neuroscience in which novel biomarkers will have greatest near-term impact on the rate at which new treatments are brought forward for psychiatric and neurological disorders.

  • Discuss the necessary parameters for such a high-impact biomarker.

  • Discuss potential partnerships needed to advance the development of biomarkers and biosignatures.
