    Location: Harvard Law School, Wasserstein, Cambridge, MA

    Conference: Post-Trial Responsibilities: Ethics and Implementation – September 18, 2014
    Law, policy, and guidance are vague, sometimes conflicting, and generally lacking in concrete solutions for questions regarding post-trial responsibilities. The issues are complex and demand thoughtful discourse to move the clinical trial enterprise toward meaningful solutions. The conference will include a diverse set of global stakeholders who will address and develop some consensus around various topics, such as the range of perspectives on post-trial access, implications of the 2013 Declaration of Helsinki revisions, and potential scenarios and solutions for post-trial access to medicines. September 18, 7:30am-5:30pm, Harvard Law School, Wasserstein, Cambridge, MA. For more information and to register, please visit the website.

    Time: 09:00 AM - 5:30 PM

    Harvard Catalyst’s 2014 Child Health Symposium
    Mental Health and the Developing Brain in the Second Decade of Life:
    Research Challenges and Opportunities

    October 6, 2014
    9:00am-5:30pm
    Joseph B. Martin Conference Center
    Harvard Medical School

    Registration is required. Please sign up by September 29.

    The second decade of life is one of tremendous physiological and psychological changes. Structural changes in the brain during this developmental period are profound, and underlie many of these physiological and psychological changes. The second decade of life is also the time when psychopathology – depression, substance abuse, schizophrenia – emerges for many, all too often with tragic sequelae of self-inflicted and interpersonal violence.

    The purpose of this year's day-long symposium is to bring together outstanding speakers from across the nation with Harvard’s Child Health Research community to discuss key areas across the clinical and translational spectrum in relation to child/adolescent mental health. An additional goal is to spur formation of new collaborations, which will hopefully lead to groundbreaking research aimed at enhancing mental health across the life course.

    Keynote Speakers:

    Session Topics: Mood dysregulation | Youth suicide | Violence | Concussion and the developing brain

    Please see the website for a complete listing of speakers and information on how to register by September 29.
