Committee on Research

Committee Chair: Valerie Voon, M.D., Ph.D.

Deputy Chair: Simon Ducharme, M.D.

The Committee on Research facilitates the expansion of scientific knowledge about neuropsychiatric disorders by writing review articles 1) to summarize the state of knowledge pertaining to questions of clinical and scientific interest, 2) to identify gaps in our present knowledge, and 3) to suggest productive directions for future research.  These reviews are published in The Journal of Neuropsychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences and presented at ANPA annual meetings.
