Research and Teaching

Our researchers continuously strive to better understand mental disorders and difficulties and to increase treatment options. Progress in these areas would not be possible without our patients who are willing to put themselves at the service of research and participate in a wide variety of studies and research projects. Staff members at the PUK are also involved in university teaching and research, and we provide professional training and further and continuing education as part of international networks.
