Conducting state-of-the-art scientific investigation to maximize discovery and accelerate translation of findings towards achieving prevention and cures is a core element of the McLean Hospital mission.

Demonstrating that commitment, we have developed this new publication. This inaugural edition and those to follow will focus exclusively on the cutting-edge research taking place here at McLean.

Included in our first edition are stories about personalized stem cell therapy for Parkinson’s disease, the biology behind major depressive disorder, a potential new treatment for PTSD, and how trauma affects women’s brains.
