The Lundbeck Foundation Initiative for
Integrative Psychiatric Research
iPSYCH in brief
"The Lundbeck Foundation Initiative for Integrative Psychiatric Research" - iPSYCH project will study five specific mental disorders; autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression. All disorders are associated with major human and societal costs all over the world. The project will study these disorders from many different angles, ranging from genes and cells to population studies, from fetus to adult, from cause to symptoms of the disorder, and this knowledge will be combined in new ways across scientific fields.
The main goals are to identify the causes of these disorders by studying the genetic and environmental factors. The perspective is to offer better and more personalized treatment, providing a better life for each individual patient - and perhaps even ways to prevent the development of the disorder in some cases.
A new 3-year grant from the Lundbeck Foundation
The iPSYCH research project has received a new 3-year grant from the Lundbeck Foundation, starting from 1 March 2015. With this grant, the project will become one of the largest in the world within the field of psychiatric research.
