The Vall d’Hebron University Hospital Foundation (VHIR) is a public sector institution that promotes and develops innovative biomedical research, with more than 1,184 publications in 2019.
The Group of Psychiatry, Mental Health and Addictions is part of Neuroscience Area, a section that is leading the translational research at the institution and is becoming one of the most important clusters of research on neurological and psychiatric disorders across Europe. It is integrated by psychiatrists, psychologist, geneticists and statisticians, and it is the Spanish reference center for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Also, additional access is available to common services at the institution including the Support Unit for Biomedical Research Methodology (USMIB), the Scientific Unit technical Support (UCTS), which houses genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and bioinformatics facilities, and the Statistics and Bioinformatics Unit (BSU) that gives support for high-throughput data analysis in the context of different research projects.
