Collaborations take place with various departments and disciplines, including general practice medicine, nuclear medicine, neuroscience, neurology, neurosurgery, pharmacology, clinical chemistry, genetics, and statistics.
Collaborations are also being set up with other faculties at the University of Groningen, including the centre of expertise Healthwise, the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health, the departments of Psychology, Artificial Intelligence, and Applied Linguistics, and Health Economics (a subfield of Economics).
The research conducted in the new programme will focus on the theme Brain & Cognition (previously: the Ageing Brain) and the interfaculty Research School of Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences (BCN).
The CCNP research group is multidisciplinary with a strong clinical signature that focuses on applications relevant to clinical care for children, adults, and the elderly. In contrast to the Interdisciplinary Center Psychopathology and Emotion Regulation (ICPE), the CCNP research group uses a more clinical and transdiagnostic approach. Some researchers may be affiliated with both programmes, depending on the subject of the research projects that they participate in.
