P-CRI Research Training

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 P-CRI 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 and Mock Study Sections

These quarterly grant pre-review sessions are intended to supplement advice from mentors. The feedback allows applicants to receive a wide range of perspectives and to better prepare for critiques from study section members.

Clinical Research Engagement Workgroup (CREW)

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. sherwood.brown@utsouthwestern.edu

The monthly meetings take place at 9 a.m. the first Friday of each month in room BL6.416. 

Psychiatric and Neurocognitive Assessment Training

The Psychiatry Clinical Research Infrastructure trains clinicians and researchers to use neurocognitive tests in clinical research, and diagnostic and symptom assessment tools for a variety of psychiatric disorders.

Biomarkers in Clinical Research Seminar Series/Neuropsychology Evaluation

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.

Database Development and Maintenance

As a critical component of research, the P-CRI trains investigators to develop and maintain databases. Statistical consultants are available to train investigators, coordinators, and study personnel in the use of study-specific database management systems.
