Looking ahead to APA’s 2018 Annual Convention in San Francisco, Aug. 9-12

Div. 28 previews its plans for an exciting 2018 convention.

By Michael Wesley, PhD

We are excited to encourage any and all basic science and clinical researchers to submit abstracts for the 126th APA Annual Convention. This year’s convention will be held in beautiful San Francisco, Aug. 9-12, 2018.

We need your help in making this a strong and breakout convention that highlights the latest and greatest in clinical and basic science research. Make plans now to drink great coffee and dodge bicycles on the way to see terrific posters and presentations. Take pleasure in knowing that someone is teching out on a cable car trying to get to your awesome work. Together, we can make this happen.

The 2018 Div. 28 program will provide multiple networking opportunities and will highlight several hot-topic areas, including the opioid crisis and cannabis legalization, and clinical and research tools, like noninvasive brain stimulation and data crowdsourcing. We especially welcome submissions dealing with topics related to substance abuse in diverse populations, but all submissions related to psychopharmacology and substance abuse are welcome. We hope to see submissions featuring the work of students, early career investigators and established investigators.

More information about the convention is available on the convention website.

Please email me with questions and be on the lookout for announcements about craft beer and our awesome 2018 convention plans.
