Fundamental research: Underlying mechanisms of disease and health

To make the right clinical decisions or develop effective diagnostic tests and treatments, it is important to understand the underlying mechanisms of a condition or behavior.

Rebecca Schaefer

The projects of this pillar investigate how they arise, what possible risk factors are, and how these mechanisms can be influenced for a wide variety of (neuro-)psychological and physical disorders and related behavioral factors. The findings from these projects are then applied in projects aimed at developing new diagnostics and treatments.
