World-leading psychiatry researcher to LiU
A completely new psychiatry research centre will be established at Linköping University and the University Hospital, directed by the world-leading addiction researcher Markus Heilig. The venture is worth more than 200 million Swedish crowns, and is funded by the Swedish Research Council, Linköping University and the Östergötland County Council. Researchers in different fields will work closely with doctors and patients in the care setting, making it possible to quickly convert preclinical discoveries into clinical treatments.
