Institute presentation

The CNAG is a non-profit organization funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and the Catalan Government through the Economy and Knowledge Department and the Health Department. Competitive grants and contractual research with the private sector provide additional funds. Since 1st July 2015 the CNAG is integrated with the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG).

The CNAG was created in 2009 with the mission to carry out projects in DNA sequencing and analysis in collaboration with researchers from Catalonia, Spain and from the international research community in order to ensure the competiveness of our country in the strategic area of genomics. The Sequencing Unit manages a large park of last-generation sequencing systems, which positions the CNAG as one of the top European centers in terms of sequencing capacity.

The Center has a highly qualified staff, 50% of which holds a PhD degree. The bioinformatics team together with an outstanding computing infrastructure (7.6 petabyte of data storage and 3472 cores of computing) places CNAG as a center of excellence in data analysis.

The CNAG takes part in genome sequencing and analysis projects in areas as cancer genetics, rare disorders, host-pathogen interactions, the preservation of endangered species, evolutionary studies and improvement of species of agricultural interest, in collaboration with universities, hospitals, research centers and companies in the sector of biotechnology and pharma.

Institute presentation

The Department of Psychiatry, Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy of the University Hospital of Würzburg has eight inpatient and two day clinic wards as well as specialized outpatient clinics. The clinical and scientific focus of the Department lies on neurodevelopmental disorders including adult ADHD, affective disorders (especially bipolar disorder) and schizophrenia. The Department is founding member of the German Center of Developmental Psychiatry (D-ZEP). 

The Department of Psychiatry with its sub-divisions (Molecular Psychiatry and Psychiatric Neurobiology) is dedicated to in-depth research on the interdependent relationship between molecular and neurobiological mechanisms related to neurodevelopmental and life-spanning psychiatric disorders using interdisciplinary and translational research strategies and has an extensive track record of excellence in GxE research.

Translational research encompasses in-depth multi-level phenotyping of animal models as well as genomic imaging and genomic neuropsychology in order to characterize molecular mechanisms underlying behavioral traits. To do so, it accommodates core competences with unique methodological portfolios complementary to participating collaborators. The Department is part of an established translational research initiative at the University of Würzburg, aimed at investigating the epigenetic basis of psychiatric disorders.

Institute presentation

Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (VHIR) is a public sector institution that promotes and develops innovative biomedical research at the University Hospital Vall d'Hebron. VHIR is oriented towards finding solutions to the health problems of the citizens and has the will to contribute to the scientific, educational, social and economic development within its area of competence. The Department of Psychiatry is part of the Neuroscience Area, a section that is leading the translational research at the Institute and is becoming one of the most important clusters of research on neurological and psychiatric disorders across Europe. The Department of Psychiatry, integrated by psychiatrists, clinical pharmacologists, geneticists and statisticians, is a national reference center for ADHD. The group has expertise in clinical evaluation and patient recruitment, has excellent laboratory facilities for genetic studies as well as access to common services at the institution including the Support Unit for Biomedical Research Methodology (USMIB), the Scientific Unit technical Support (UCTS) and the Statistics and Bioinformatics Unit (BSU) that give support to analytical aspects of the different research projects.

The VHIR is committed to the development of an attractive labour market for researchers and to encourage a challenging and favourable working environment for research with equal opportunities, ethical integrity and work life balance. In early 2014 the VHIR initiated the process to obtain the European Commission HR Excellence in Research recognition.

Institute presentation

The Department of Psychiatry, Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy of the University Hospital of Frankfurt has eight inpatient and two day clinic wards as well as specialized outpatient clinics. The clinical and scientific focus of the Department lies on neurodevelopmental disorders including adult ADHD, affective disorders (especially bipolar disorder) and schizophrenia. The Department is founding member of the German Center of Developmental Psychiatry (D-ZEP). 

The Laboratory of Translational Psychiatry covers a wide range of methods focusing on translational research. This comprises behavioral phenotyping including behavioral pharmacology of genetically modified mice, with special emphasis on gene x environment interactions, genetic association studies in humans – also investigating gene x environment effects -, and functional consequences of genetic risk variants on the molecular level (proteomics, cell models). This is complemented by neuropsychological and neuroimaging studies. 

Andreas Reif is head of the department since 08/2014, and has a long track record on translational studies in ADHD. He has published more than 220 peer reviewed articles. Sarah Kittel-Schneider is senior physician and leader of the cell models and biomarkers group. Joyce Auer is lab technician and complements the group with her experience in molecular analysis and cell culture.
