The BrainDrugs alliance builds on strong cross-disciplinary research environments within universities and hospitals in Denmark and is supported by two European partners from Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV), Switzerland and VU University Medical Center (VUMC) in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The involved Danish institutions span several different departments at Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet (RH), University of Copenhagen (UCPH), Aarhus University Hospital (AUH), and Aarhus University (AU), as well as the Filadelfia Epilepsy Hospital (Filadelfia) and three different mental health centers from the Capital Region of Denmark, namely Psychiatric Center Copenhagen, Psychiatric Center Glostrup, and Mental Health Center Sct. Hans.
