New ideas and points of view in research are integral to innovation. The Heinz C. Prechter Research Program (Prechter Program) values the diversity of perspectives that can be gained through international collaborations and has invited collaborators world-wide to join together to investigate areas of interest through the extensive Prechter datasets.
The overarching goals of the Prechter Program and its collaborators are to:
- Focus and accelerate advancement of worldwide research in bipolar disorder
- Create a space where research ideas can be evaluated and applied to longitudinal cohort research in large scale samples
- Provide an ontological framework to organize current knowledge and create the way forward
- Encourage multidisciplinary participation of early and senior investigators in long-lasting networks
