Congratulations to Shane Hegarty, Anand Gururajan, Cara Hueston, and Danka Kozareva, researchers in the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience and John Kelly also in Department of  Psychiatry & Neurobehavioural Sciences, who were selected as 5 of 100 junior scientists to present their research at the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ECNP) Workshop - Neuropsychopharmacology for “Junior Scientists” in Europe on the 17-20 March 2016, in Nice, France.

During this three-day workshop, junior scientists, selected on the basis of application, from Europe were brought together with research leaders to discuss the latest advances and perspectives on specific topics. By promoting and encouraging the development of junior scientists seeking to pursue research careers in neuropsychopharmacology, the ECNP Workshop aims to stimulate high-quality experimental and clinical research in mental disorders and their treatments. The Workshop focused on three recurring topics and one variable topic. The three recurring topics are:

  • Molecular and cellular 
  • Behavioural and systems 
  • Clinical and translational 

Within each topic two distinguished scientists addressed specific themes, after which there were short presentations by the five Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience junior scientists, who were invited to present their research.
