Personalized ADHD Medication
An Applied Research Project
Objectification of ADHD Medication
Therefore, the Hirschmann Foundation aims at contributing to the objectification of diagnosis and therapy in ADHD treatment by supporting a research project conducted by the Brain and Trauma Foundation Grisons.
Testing new methods of measurementToday’s risk of (medical) mistreatment shall be reduced through the testing of new methods of measurement and the application of biomarkers. The question of how people who suffer from ADHD can be best supported is at stake.
The research concept that has been developed by the Brain and Trauma Foundation will be realized in collaboration with the University Hospital of Psychiatry Zurich, practicing doctors, therapists, as well as computer scientists.
Detecting InterdependenciesThe collected biomarker data are being put into relation with various approaches to therapy and treatment. Further, the factuality of postulated interdependencies is being examined.
Upon conclusion of the research project, the results will be made available to the interested public in a scientific publication.
The interdisciplinary research project will be funded by the Hirschmann Foundation with a contribution of CHF 0.5 mio. during a period of three years.
