Combining Basic and Clinical Research

Brain diseases - including developmental disorders, neurological and psychiatric disorders - belong to the most frequent causes of death and handicap in our society. It is generally accepted that large improvements in diagnosis and treatment of these diseases requests further research, both at basic and clinical levels.

The Vision of the NeuroCluster is to achieve a strengthened overall impact of the Copenhagen Neurosciences on the international scene.

The Mission of the NeuroCluster is the dynamic generation of cross-disciplinary research projects, involving both basic and clinical neuroscience.

To achieve these goals the NeuroCluster will facilitate cross-disciplinary projects - between basic research groups and basic and clinical research groups, thereby creating new collaborative networks at the Faculty. A host of initiatives, such as lectures, meetings, symposia, and neuroscience courses, will facilitate the process.
