Doctorate & PhD dissertations
Scientific research at the Brain Research and Innovation Centre is usually carried out in the context of obtaining a doctorate (PhD degree).
The Brain Research and Innovation Centre works closely with the Brain Division of Utrecht University Medical Center. Thanks to this strategic partner, it is possible to employ PhD students and temporary project staff with the research funding that is available.
Since 2001, the Ministry of Defence has been conducting research into the neurobiological background of posttraumatic stress disorder. Each PhD research project is bundled in a disseration, that has been defended before an academic committee of the University.
Here you can find an overview of all dissertations that are based on research that has been carried out at the Military Mentalhealth Care (MGGZ) and the Brain Research and Innovation Centre.
