Thursday, October 25

Location: Tangerine WF1

Over the last several years inflammation has come to the forefront of mental health research and clinical practice. Dr. Raison, a leading researcher in the field of immune-brain interactions, will review recent scientific findings on the role of inflammation in the development and treatment of psychiatric conditions. This session will focus on important clinical topics, including the use of inflammatory biomarkers to guide treatment selection and how to determine which patients are likely to benefit from, and be harmed by, immune-based treatments.
