Conor Liston, a 2015 One Mind/Janssen Translational Research Rising Star Awardee, continues to make exciting progress on understanding the biological causes of depression and ways to promote recovery. His overarching hypothesis is that there are multiple subtypes of depression and that therapies need to specifically target these subtypes to be effective. This aligns with the [...]
Depression is the most common debilitating mental health condition, and one of the most varied, in both its causes and in the experience of the people it afflicts. As Dr. Conor Liston of Weill Cornell Medical College has pointed out, analyzing the different permutations of criteria for diagnosing depression via the DSM-V makes it appear [...]
2016 has been a breakthrough year for brain health science. Our thanks go to the many generous individuals, foundations and corporations who contributed over $3.5 million in 2016. These contributions enabled One Mind to provide grants to three Rising Star Awardees in translational and clinical research, while past grantees developed surprising and useful discoveries and [...]

Causes and symptoms of the diagnosis differ from case to case, making it impossible to treat and to study effectively using a "one size fits all" approach. Although a more refined set of diagnoses accurately distinguishing depression subtypes would be a huge boon to patients, [...]
Conor Liston, MD PhD presents how he will use his 2015 One Mind / Janssen Rising Star Award to develop biological diagnostics to enable doctors to determine optimal treatments for individuals with specific types of depression. Recorded at One Mind's 21st Music Festival for Brain Health.
