This 2015 International Suicide Research Summit will bring together suicide researchers studying topics ranging from neurobiology and genetics to prevention and intervention. All suicide researchers and those interested in learning about the most cutting edge evidence are invited to attend and take advantage of this excellent opportunity to network and interact. In addition to plenary sessions with preeminent suicide researchers and symposia, the meeting will include a mentoring program, poster sessions, and workshops addressing methodological issues particular to suicide research, such as assessment of suicidal behavior, strategies for research on low base rate outcomes, use of proxy measures, and maintaining the delicate balance between ethical and methodological concerns. We look forward to seeing you in New York!
