Cutting-edge science in translational psychiatry is only possible within a coherent team. For this reason, the Translational Psychiatry lab of professors Stefan Borgwardt and Christina Andreou met outside Lübeck to discuss their innovative scientific avenues and endeavours.
The lab’s focus on seamlessly integrating research with its application in its own early detection service, the Baltic Early Treatment Service (BEATS), was at the centre of the attention. A service that combines validated early screening and intervention approaches of psychiatric disorders with innovative science in an attempt to generate improved predictions of disease progression/transition and guide treatments.
The beautiful surroundings of the Wakenitz river and excellent hosting by the cottage Absalonshorst helped our team to gather new motivation for solving the upcoming challenges in early detection and prediction of psychosis and other mental disorders, psychedelic interventions, predictions with artificial intelligence, and cognitive perceptual science.
