The inaugural Translational Bridges in Mood & Addiction: Bench to Bedside & Back to Bench course provides 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 high rates of illness morbidity and comorbidity. Available treatments often fall short of remission or recovery, mainly due to the heterogeneous nature of the disease presentation. There is great need to better personalize or individualize treatments through translational research in psychiatry. The 2014 course includes Mayo Clinic faculty from Rochester, Minn., and Jacksonville, Fla., and is led by Susannah J. Tye, Ph.D., Doo-Sup Choi, Ph.D., and Mark A. Frye, M.D. Special guest faculty includes Peter Kalivas, Ph.D., Jair Soares, M.D., Robert Post, M.D., Barbara Mason, Ph.D., and Katie Cullen, M.D. If you would like to obtain information or apply for the poster travel fellowship, please submit your name, university affiliation, primary mentor and letter of reference to the CME coordinator, Ms. Hailey M. Lalicata. A funded travel fellowship will be given to one clinician and one neuroscientist for this event. Please e-mail questions and submissions to MAYOCLINICPSYCH@mayo.edu.
