We work to improve the health and quality of life of the very youngest

Pathologies of the foetus and psychiatric disorders are some of the lines of research we support in order to improve children’ physical and mental health.

Foetal disorders. Hospital Clínic de Barcelona Maternal/Foetal Medical Service

Infants who have suffered delayed growth at the foetal stage may display anomalous brain development that leads to learning difficulties. It is critical to detect these problems early in order to combat their effects and improve the infants’ quality of life.

Since 2010 we have worked with the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona on research into new technologies to allow early diagnosis and identification of possible therapeutic targets. This centre, which has become a leader in its field together with those in Detroit, London, Louvain and Paris, conducts about two hundred interventions a year on pregnant women from all over the world.

Psychiatry. Hospital Vall d’Hebron

Borderline personality disorders (BPD) affect between 1% and 2% of the population at large, and between 18% and 32% of patients hospitalised in psychiatric units.

Since 2005 we have worked with the Hospital Vall d’Hebron to provide care for adolescents and young people with BPD, offering an overall view in order to assure continuity of care in the process.
