Conference Science of Translation: Optimizing Animal Models for Neuropsychiatry

Organized by the University of Cologne, Germany

MAY 24-25, 2018


The goal of this conference is threefold: to advocate for a better use of animal models, to provide a platform to openly discuss limitations and strengths of upcoming strategies in neuropsychiatric preclinical research, and to create an environment that will stimulate future collaborations and long lasting network. This conference will offer a strong route to big breakthroughs and better translational endeavors, with potential to revolutionize our field.
