Brain diseases
According to the World Health Organization, WHO, more than 700 million cases of brain diseases are reported every year. These are serious and life-threatening diseases that affect the quality of life of the patients as well as of their relatives.

As these diseases also involve major socio-economic costs, it is imperative for the general society that new and innovative pharmaceuticals are developed. Over the past 50 years, new pharmaceuticals have revolutionised the treatment options, but there remains a large unmet need for new and innovative therapeutics.
