The new PET Centre for brain research is a cornerstone of the Medicine Campus at Jülich. Here, scientists investigate the structure and function of the healthy and diseased human brain and develop methods of diagnosing and treating neurological and psychiatric disorders. They use the latest procedures and techniques in the field of imaging as well as for fabricating and applying highly specific radiopharmaceuticals. The new PET Centre is the culmination of more than 30 years of successful PET research at Jülich. It focuses on fundamental neuroscientific research with an emphasis on transferring current research findings to clinical applications.
