Mental and substance use disorders account for more than 7% of the global burden of disease and are the leading cause of disability in young people (1,2). In terms of lost productivity, the cumulative disability due to depression alone exacts an annual cost of $201 billion in the United States (3). The toll on young people is especially alarming; in the United States, the suicide rate among 15- to 24-year-olds has tripled since the 1950s (4).

There are hundreds of cancer subtypes, but only so many researchers, and only so much funding for research and development: development of highly specific therapies is just not an effective path forward. Examples of the most promising lines of work with broad application include the OncoSe...
