Mountain Air Stimulates Discussion at ICOSR
Pikes Peak
About 1,000 schizophrenia researchers made their way to the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado, for the 15th International Congress on Schizophrenia Research from March 29 to April 1. This year's meeting was one long thank-you to Carol Tamminga and Chuck Schulz, who
founded the meeting and have worked tirelessly to grow it from a few dozen stalwarts into a major biennial event (listen to our podcast interview with them). Carol and Chuck have turned the meeting over to an executive committee led by Jim Meador-Woodruff, and these researchers made appearances throughout the Congress to extol the founders.

We at SRF would also like to extend our deepest thanks to Carol and Chuck. From our earliest days, they have regarded us as an integral part of the research enterprise and helped us to fit easily into the community. In particular, they have given us a chance to recruit their Young Investigator travel awardees as reporters, and you will see their reports in the coming weeks.

Here are the first reports from the conference:

  • Approaches to Prevention in Schizophrenia
  • Patient-Derived Cells For Schizophrenia Research
  • Neuroinflammation, White Matter, and Schizophrenia
  • Boosting Social Cognition in Schizophrenia
  • Higher Fruits From Gene-Gene Interactions?
  • Schizophrenia Researchers Peek at RNA-seq
  • Stress and Glutamate Kick Off Rocky Mountain Congress
  • ACNP Seeks Nominees for 2015 Awards
    The American College of Neuropsychopharmacology is putting out the call for several honorific awards for early to mid-career researchers. Nominations are due June 24, 2015, for the Daniel H. Efron Research Award for outstanding basic research; the Joel Elkes Research Award for clinical research; and the Eva King Killam Research Award for translational research.

    Nominees do not need to be members of the ACNP, but they do need to be younger than 50 years of age for the Efron and Elkes awards, and no more than 12 years out of school for the Killam award. See the full nominating details.
