The foundation contributed to the financing of the Gillberg Neuropsychiatry Centre at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, Sahlgrenska Academy, and the Birgit Olsson lectureship linked to the centre. The Gillberg Neuropsychiatry Centre primarily conduct research on autism, ADHD and anorexia nervosa. The Gillberg Neuropsychiatry Centre was founded in 2010 and features a group of approximately 80 research active people.
