New Online Initiative for Mining

The PsychHTS initiative invites neuroscientists with new ideas for a potential psychiatric drug target to apply for access to the infrastructure and expertise provided through an online PsychHTS platform. It has been launched by the Broad Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Selected applicants are then “paired up with a Broad scientist ‘chaperone’ to develop further tests.

The editorial of the latest Nature Neuroscience views this initiative in the light of previous projects, e.g., the Molecular Libraries by the NIH.
