Snapshots of Psychiatry: Accelerating Research Across the NNDC

2021 – 2022 Virtual Lecture Series

In light of health and safety concerns for large gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic, the NNDC has moved to refit the 2021 Visiting Professor Program into a Virtual Lecture Series. The series will be composed of 6 lectures, with three occurring in 2021 and three occurring in 2022. The 2021-2022 Virtual Lecture Series will feature presentations focused on “breaking news” from the Network and would like to showcase work being conducted or recently published among our Task Groups.

The NNDC is launching the first lecture of the series November 17th, 2021 at 5:30pm ET – 6:30 pm ET.
