Endeavor Scientists Program

A pioneering effort to train and support the multidisciplinary scientists necessary to make the next great breakthroughs in brain science.

The Endeavor Scientists Program is a pioneering effort to support the development of talented multidisciplinary scientists in research positions at academic and medical institutions around the globe. Recent technological, methodological and neuroscientific innovations are transforming the field of children’s mental health. However, traditionally trained psychiatric researchers often lack the rigorous technical and analytic backgrounds necessary to advance the field with these innovations.

Recruited from diverse fields such as computer science, engineering, mathematics and statistics, Child Mind Institute scientists are collaborating on research studies that seek a deeper understanding of the developing brain. Our teams are examining and sharing data to accelerate the pace of biomarker discovery and bring us closer to developing better treatments — and eventually prevention — of mental health and learning disorders in children and adolescents.
