“Healing the Brain with Neuroscience and Technology”

The 2023 SOBP Annual Meeting provides an interactive platform for learning and discovery. The meeting program focuses on alternative and transformative frameworks for understanding psychiatric illnesses, and presents enhanced and newly emerging tools for measurement and manipulation. Within these frameworks and with these tools, techniques and experimental designs are illustrated that can enhance understanding of psychiatric illness and elucidate the biological pathways and markers of illness processes.

While scientific quality is paramount, this year the committee has prioritized symposia proposals that are composed of diverse participants and that address diversity in scientific topics as indicated in the following diversity statements:
Diversity in Participants
Symposium participants included scientists and/or clinicians who are diverse in gender, individuals from underrepresented backgrounds or underrepresented groups in science, technology, etc. In addition, symposia attempted to include individuals who are at an early career stage.
Diversity in Scientific Topics
The SOBP strongly supports diversity in the scientific topics of symposia and sought symposia that addressed important understudied factors (e.g., sex- and gender-based analyses, vulnerabilities and treatment gaps for minority populations, etc.) in psychiatric neuroscience.
