BPS, LASA and Psychiatry Consortium joint workshop
BPS, LASA and Psychiatry Consortium joint workshop:
Exploring the status of preclinical models of psychiatric disorders – their validity and scope for successful translation
|Thursday 25 February 2021
Virtual Online meeting
A free interactive online workshop to further explore the key issues and opportunities raised in the joint BPS-LASA symposium on 24th February 2021. The workshop will be of particular interest to anyone interested in preclinical psychiatry drug discovery, whether from a clinical, preclinical, translational, welfare, academic, industrial, or regulatory perspective. We particularly encourage registration from those who are in the early stages of their career.
The British Pharmacological Society and Laboratory Animal Science Association recognise the challenges faced by the psychiatric research community and have come together to deliver a joint symposium to highlight the role of preclinical models in translational psychopharmacology.
The Psychiatry Consortium aims to facilitate the discovery and validation of new drug targets from academia, and to bring together the psychiatric research community to overcome key challenges facing psychiatric drug discovery. In this capacity, they propose a combined effort to build upon the issues raised in the BPS-LASA symposium (24th February 2021), and further explore the use of preclinical models in psychiatric drug discovery in an interactive workshop, utilising the experience of all those involved along the translational pathway.
