Health Capital Helsinki spearheads:
Brains from molecules to communities
Multidisciplinary brain research in the Helsinki region is among the best in the world. The neuroimaging centre (Aalto NeuroImaging Infrastructure) and biobank development create a strong basis for new neurological research. When you add excellent patient data registries and strong expertise in computational sciences to these, the result is countless opportunities for both researching and finding treatments for neurological and psychiatric illnesses.
Stroke treatment results in Helsinki are the best in the world: here, thrombolytic therapy can be received faster than anywhere else worldwide. Examples of studies done here on nervous system diseases include the discovery of lymphatic vessels in the brain, developing Parkinson’s disease medication and finding the causes of a certain ALS disease.
