MHeNs School for Mental Health and Neuroscience

The principal focus of the School for Mental Health and Neuroscience, abbreviated as (‘MHeNs’) is to conduct high-impact translational neuroscience research on neurological and psychiatric illness as well as mental health, and to provide state-of-the-art education to Master and PhD students. To this end, MHeNs brings together basic and clinical neuroscience domains in translational focus areas and expert groups. This enables maximum synergy between research groups across its current three divisions, optimizing the use of available expertise, and forging alignment of animal models and human research projects.
