Opportunities for study of anxiety disorders

22 August 2011

The Brain-Behaviour Initiative (BBI) at UCT has received a boost - a grant from the European Union. The grant, called the Joint European and South African Research Network in Anxiety Disorders (EUSARNAD), will allow an interchange of students between UCT and a range of outstanding European universities.

Students will be able to gain skills in areas such as neurogenetics, neuroimaging and other aspects of the psychobiology of anxiety disorders and related conditions.

The aim of this research exchange is to share knowledge and expertise among participating centres in order to ensure a comprehensive translational research approach in anxiety disorders, relevant to the needs of developed and developing societies.

Professor Dan Stein, director of the BBI, said that he was really delighted by the opportunities this would provide for brain-behaviour students.
