Fundamental Neuroscience

Biomarker Discovery to Enable Precision Medicine

Fundamental Neuroscience

One of the greatest barriers to improved mental health treatment is the subjectivity of diagnosis. Pinpointing the cause of a child’s challenges is often crucial to getting them the support they need. But mental health professionals can only interpret what’s wrong by observing a patient and listening to their story. Often, the same outward symptoms can reflect a range of underlying causes.

That’s why we’re leading a global effort to identify measurable brain- and behavior-based biomarkers to guide clinical practice. We want to understand what a child is struggling with and how to help them through objective measures such as brain scans and sleep tests. This will spark a revolution in mental health by dramatically improving the precision of our diagnoses and the reliability of our treatments.
