Workshop Opportunity: Modeling Developmental Change in the ABCD Study

We are hosting a five-week virtual workshop (June 22-July 22, 2021), open to approximately 40 developmental scientists, that will prepare researchers to use the ABCD data for longitudinal investigations of brain development in relation to mental health. The workshop will include training on reproducible neuroimaging methods, longitudinal modeling approaches, and clinical mental health outcomes, with equal emphasis on theory and application. Researchers from developmental, clinical, cognitive neuroscience, and computational backgrounds are encouraged to apply, as all of these areas of expertise are needed to advance our understanding of mental health.

In order to identify attendees for the limited number of spaces in our workshop, we are asking interested researchers to fill out a short application, which can be accessed here: https://forms.gle/utPYnu6FYP2Ydf1P8. Priority will be given to individuals working with ABCD data for longitudinal investigations of brain development in relation to mental health. Applications close April 15, 11:59 pm Pacific.

If possible, we would appreciate it if you could forward this information to anyone you know who might be interested in attending! For more information about the workshop, visit https://abcdworkshop.github.io/. This workshop is funded by NIMH Grant R25-MH125545.

Thank you!
