The Psychiatry Clinical Research Infrastructure (P-CRI) Program offers training designed to provide valuable insight into the grant and manuscript review process for junior faculty and advanced trainees.
The program also facilitates psychiatric and neurocognitive assessment trainings for all levels of research staff. As leading research methodologies evolve, the P-CRI is dedicated to developing dynamic training programs that prepare investigators for successful careers in research.
Research Training Opportunities
- Grant Review
- Clinical Research Engagement Workgroup (CREW)
- Psychiatric and Neurocognitive Assessment
- Biomarkers in Clinical Research Seminar Series
- Database Development and Maintenance
These quarterly grant pre-review sessions are intended to supplement advice from mentors. The feedback will allow applicants to receive a wide range of perspectives and to better prepare for critiques from study section members.
All sessions take place at 4 p.m. in room BL6.416.

The Clinical Research Engagement Workgroup allows investigators (particularly more junior investigators) to receive a wide range of viewpoints on research data and ideas. The feedback will supplement and expand upon feedback from mentors. New members are welcome to join by emailing Sherwood Brown, M.D., Ph.D., at email@example.com.
The monthly meetings take place at noon the third Tuesday of each month in room BL6.416.

Biomarkers play an increasing role in clinical research and personalized medicine by identifying patients who are more likely (or not) to respond to treatments. Biomarkers permit investigators to diagnose and employ efficient methodologies of treatment. The Biomarkers in Clinical Research Seminar Series explores the efficacy of biomarkers in clinical and translational research.
