Multinational Research Projects on Transnational Biomarkers in Brain Disorders

Basic Information

Maintenance, improvement and restoration of human health are of fundamental importance and worldwide priority. In Europe, one out of every four citizens experience a neurological or psychiatric condition, leading to a serious economic and social burden due to long-term disability and mortality. Neuroscience research and its translation into diagnostic and therapeutic outcomes are of fundamental importance to improve health in our society.
