The 2016-2017 Minds Behind the MIND lecture series will resume on October 2016.  Leading researchers and clinicians from the UC Davis MIND Institute will present current research and new treatment findings.  The presentations will give our community a better perspective on the scope of research being conducted at the MIND Institute, the outcomes of this research, and ways they may support these efforts.

Lectures will be held on Wednesday evenings at the UC Davis MIND Institute.  Information on research studies will be available and The Resource Center will be open before and after each presentation. There will also be an extended “ask the experts” session with the panelists after the presentation. Please note that seating is limited.

For more information about the series, contact Terri Contenti at 916-703-0289.
