The HDRF Depression Task Force:
In 2010, HDRF launched its Depression Task Force (DTF) – an outstanding collaboration of ten leading scientists, at the frontiers of brain science, from different research institutions across the U.S. and Canada.
These scientists have developed an unprecedented research road map that integrates the most advanced knowledge in genetics, epigenetics, molecular biology, electrophysiology, and brain imaging.
Each is executing a piece of the research plan in their own lab. To accelerate breakthrough research, they share ongoing results, in real time, at a centralized data bank, the HDRF Data Center.
