Our vision

Our goal is to treat and care for patients using evidence-based methods derived from research rooted in clinical practice, allowing us to provide the best outcome for our patients. As a result our research projects involve basic and clinical research that often entails collaboration between clinicians, psychologists, neurologists, molecular biologists and biostatisticians.
In the near future we particularly want to strengthen our research on eating disorders and psychotherapy, while simultaneously continuing to create an even closer link between research and clinical practice. 

Main strategic research areas

  • Affective disorders: treatment, risk factors and early intervention
  • Psychosis (especially schizophrenia): treatment, risk factors, early intervention, psychosocial interventions and illness mechanisms in the brain
