2:30 PM-6:00 PM
Day 1: November 13 - 2:30PM-6:00PM
Day 2: November 14 - 9:00AM-6:00PM
Day 3: November 15 - 9:00 AM-2:00PM
Co-organized by Drs. Jeremy Willsey, Hao Li, and Nevan Krogan, the inaugural Psychiatric Cell Map Initiative Symposium will be held at Gladstone Institutes (1650 Owens St., San Francisco, CA 94158) on November 13-15, 2019. The Psychiatric Cell Map Initiative (PCMI, pcmi.ucsf.edu) aims to bridge the gap between the genome and the clinic in the field of psychiatric disorder research. In support of this mission, the symposium will focus on current progress in translating advances in gene discovery to an understanding of the molecular underpinnings of neurodevelopmental disorders. We will also emphasize approaches spanning disorders with shared etiology and/or convergent biology. Ultimately, we strive to build a community of interdisciplinary researchers that will collaboratively drive the field forward, so we welcome attendance from any and all fields.

Call for abstracts:
As part of the symposium, we are hosting a poster session and reception on Thursday, November 14th from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm in the Byers Hall Atrium 2nd floor. We encourage interested attendees at every academic level to submit a brief poster abstract (title author list 1 paragraph) to Ashley Clement (firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration. Six submissions will be chosen for a “Rapid Talks” section on November 14th from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm (12 mins 3 mins for questions per talk). We will select poster presentation slots from the remaining abstracts. In order to be considered for the Rapid Talks, please submit your abstracts by 5 pm PST Wednesday, November 6th. We will accept additional abstracts for poster presentations only until 5 pm PST Friday, November 8th.
