Through the Bertha-Meierhofer Fund and a generous donation of the ZNZ Patronage, four young research groups were awarded with PhD Grants covering doctoral student salaries for one year each.
The following students are supported:
Sabine Dziemian, investigating neuroanatomical characteristics of data-driven ADHD subgroups in an existing large sample in the group of Nicolas Langer.
