We work to improve children's health and quality of life

Foetal pathologies and psychiatric illnesses are some of the lines of research we collaborate with in order to improve the physical and mental health of children.

Foetal illnesses: Maternal-Foetal Medicine Unit of Hospital Clínic de Barcelona

Children suffering from stunted growth during the foetal stage may have anomalous brain development that can cause learning difficulties.

It is vital to detect such problems early in order to combat their effects and improve the child's quality of life.

Since 2010 we've been working together with Hospital Clínic de Barcelona investigating new technologies to help the early diagnosis and identification of possible therapeutic targets. The centre, which has already become a pioneer in the field together with Detroit, London, Leuven and Paris, carries out 200 operations a year on pregnant women all over the world.

Psychiatry: Hospital Vall d'Hebron

Borderline Personality Disorders (BPD) affect between 1% and 2% of the total population and between 18% and 32% of patients hospitalised in psychiatric units.

Since 2005 we've been working together with the Hospital Vall d'Hebron on improving the care given to teenagers and young people with BPD, offering a comprehensive approach and aiming to ensure ongoing care throughout the process.
