The 2023 ASCP Annual Meeting is the premier meeting each year in the field of psychopharmacology. Bringing together representatives from academia, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), European regulatory agencies, and industry to discuss key aspects of neuropsychiatric drug development, including the impact of diagnostic changes and personalized interventions based on biomarkers or genetic information. A Program Committee for the Annual Meeting chaired by Drs. Susan Kornstein and Mark Rapaport including representatives from the ASCP Community, FDA, EMA, NIMH, NIDA, NIAAA, and the academia members, lead the direction of the meeting. The Review Subcommittee, under the leadership of Drs. Lee Cohen and Manish Jha, are responsible for the review of all program submissions. To ensure the meeting includes the needs of our loyal pharmaceutical industry members, we are excited to announce the launch of the ASCP Industry Advisory Council led by Dr. Ross Baker.


The ASCP Annual Meeting brings together over 1200 academic and industry investigators, research pharmacists, and clinicians, including competitively selected New Investigator awardees. ASCP is joined by federal partners, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, (NIAAA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to organize a program that emphasizes the presentation of information that has not been previously published or presented.
