From the iPSYCH website (http://ipsych.au.dk/):  “The Lundbeck Foundation Initiative for Integrative Psychiatric Research” – iPSYCH project will study five specific mental disorders; autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. All disorders are associated with major human and societal costs all over the world. The project will study these disorders from many different angles, ranging from genes and cells to population studies, from fetus to adult, from cause to symptoms of the disorder, and this knowledge will be combined in new ways across scientific fields.

The main goals are to identify the causes of these disorders by studying the genetic and environmental factors. The perspective is to offer better and more personalized treatment, providing a better life for each individual patient – and perhaps even ways to prevent the development of the disorder in some cases.

‘Named for an early Manhattan crossroads – remembered as a rowdy but cosmopolitan gathering place, and as a nexus for progress in public health – the Five Points Lectures bring outstanding scientists from near and far, to discuss their work in technical detail with researchers and clinicians from institutions served by NYGC, in order to strengthen our grasp of key biological questions and methods. Speakers present fresh and intriguing findings, along with thoughtful views on their respective fields, in full scientific depth. Talks last roughly 45 minutes — often framing five or so key points, in a nod to the series’ name — followed by 15 minutes of open Q&A, and 30 minutes of informal chat over refreshments. Speakers may then meet with one or several attending colleagues, for further discussion’ (from the NYGC webpage).
