"Welcome to the Mood Disorders Journal Club. This experience is intended as an opportunity to draw together researchers, clinicians, and students from across the campus who have an interest in Mood Disorders research. I hope that it will provide you the opportunity to be exposed to a wide range of both papers and people with whom you may not otherwise come into contact. Thanks for your interest."  -Rick Shelton
