Abstract

The role of biobehavioral sciences is critically evaluated within the model for translational research proposed in the NIH Roadmap. Concern is expressed regarding the lack of specification and representation of intervening disciplines along the translational chain from assessment to treatment to outcome. The implications of this model on the future of developmental psychopathology are discussed. A new model is proposed that emphasizes the role of biobehavioral sciences in translational research focusing on psychiatric disorders
