Partner Presentation

The Central Institute of Mental Health (CIMH), Mannheim, an independent public foundation of the State of Baden-Württemberg associated with the University of Heidelberg, is one of Europe?s premier research institutions dedicated to mental health. It is dedicated to research in psychiatry and combines an active clinical inpatient (300 beds) and outpatient program in adult psychiatry, addiction, childhood and adolescent psychiatry and psychotherapy with outstanding research facilities, including, in the domains relevant for this proposal, two dedicated research fMRI scanners (currently 1.5 Ts and 3 Ts, magnets), an 9.4 Ts animal fMRI scanner, high-throughput facilities for genotyping and molecular biology, neuropsychology and an extensive transgenic animal (both mice and rats) and animal behavior assessment facility. The CIMH contribution will be led by Prof. Meyer- Lindenberg who has pioneered the imaging of fMRI-endophenotypes in humans carrying risk genes for psychiatric disorders.
