The common pitfalls in clinical trials of depression (演講摘要)

In the topic of “The devil is in the detail: The common pitfalls in clinical trials of depression,” I will discuss about the common pitfalls in conducting clinical studies in depression. I will start with the disease entity of depression and the limitation of current diagnostic systems, which will provide an important insight and general ideas about what kind of signals we are looking for! These issues are not only important for clinical researchers for designing sound clinical trials, but also crucial for basic researchers to get insights on translational aspects when working with animals and cells.
