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.
