Gulf Coast Consortium for Mental Health Research

The term “mental health” encompasses an extremely large landscape, including the classic psychiatric dimension of mental health (a strength of UTHealth, BCM, and UTMB), aspects of psychological wellness (a strength of UH), and mental health issues secondary to other chronic illness (a strength of MD Anderson, TAMUHSC, UTHealth, and UTMB), with considerable overlap in these dimensions that can be harvested as research synergy. In addition, research domains for mental illness span the gamut from bioinformatics to molecular biology to biophysics to pharmacology to clinical in nature, with massive potential for cross-disciplinary research collaboration. Through careful consideration and strategic planning, the GCC Mental Health Research Cluster (GCC MHR) strives to meet the needs of this diverse research field and maximize the interdisciplinary synergy of the MHR community of the GCC institutions and the TMC at large.
