Cause, Cure and Care

We focus on the biological mechanisms underlying common mental health and neurological brain diseases, applying the latest technology and thereby providing new perspectives on therapy. Finding the 'cause' of brain diseases, design its 'cure' and implement this to the level of 'patient care' are all in the center of our research ambition.

'Care' in the context of being curious, and being worried; 'care' as in wanting to cherish something beautiful; 'care' as in being 'passionate' about an object or a piece of art.
