The mission of Amsterdam Neuroscience is clear: to improve understanding of the human brain and nervous system in health and disease by executing integrated basic, translational and clinical research. We do this by bringing together more than 850 clinicians, faculty and staff in the Amsterdam area, producing 1200+ publications per year, and performing research and clinical care amongst the best in the Netherlands and beyond. Our investigators target and organize their collaborations along nine translational research programs, each focused in specific brain and nervous system disease mechanisms but also on technology innovation and basic research.
In doing so, we contribute to generating deep understanding of brain mechanisms at all levels of study, from molecular, to cellular studies, to circuitry and intact brain and behavior. From there the latest scientific insights are translated into novel diagnostics and interventions for neurodegenerative, neuroimmunological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
