Interdisciplinary research

Our researchers have an interdisciplinary approach as we have researchers from a range of areas: doctors, psychologists, anthropologists, social workers and linguists. The synergy effect is used in a combination of medical, psychological, anthropological and sociological methods.


Our goal is to be the leaders in the field of research into functional disorders and health anxiety as well as to have the greatest knowledge of biological, psychological, social and cultural aspects of functional conditions and the interaction of the body, the mind and society.
