Our activity is cross-disciplinary and spans four broad but highly integrated areas: Research, Translation, Teaching and Patient care.

Research

Either in the laboratory, in clinics or on the street we are always looking for new and better ways to treat or prevent brain and mind disorders.

Translation

We work tirelessly to see our discoveries put into policy and practice.

Teaching

We train promising students and professionals from around the world to make a lasting impact on mental healthcare.

Patient care

Through our clinics we see clients who are at the coal-face of brain and mind disorders.
