Supporting innovation and discovery in the prevention and treatment of depression
Funding awarded through the Depression Center helps support research that critically advances the understanding of the origins and development of depressive illness. These studies help drive the translation of discoveries into clinical applications and best practices to improve the care of those struggling with depression and other related illnesses. Through generous donor support, the Depression Center proudly fosters the work of promising early-career investigators through various scholar award programs. Through the Executive Director’s Innovation Fund, the Depression Center also supports work that strives to achieve innovations in research, treatment, education and public policy. In supporting a new generation of investigators and promising pursuits of innovations, we strive to reach breakthroughs in research and treatment that can improve the quality of life for those living with depression or even help prevent the disease from surfacing in the first place.
