NORMENT is a Centre of Excellence (CoE) funded by the Research Council of Norway. Our main goal is to find answers to why some people develop severe mental illness.
GeneticsDisclose the complete genetic architecture of psychotic disorders and determine their functional impact
Outcome PredictionUse genetic, environmental and clinical factors to predict disease progress and outcome
Brain imagingIdentify novel brain imaging phenotypes linking genes and clinical phenotypes in a longitudinal setting
Clinical InterventionTranslate pathophysiolical discoveries into clinical and pharmacological interventions
