PhD research

Meet GNCs PhD students and learn about their research projects!

Our PhD students

Spearheaded by Professor Christopher Gillberg, the GNC's predecessor, the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology, Sahlgrenska Academy, has been successful in terms of supervising PhD students and subsequently leading them to gain their PhD degree.

When the GNC was founded, the centre pledged to double the number of PhD students supervised and PhD degrees gained over a five-year period, compared to the five years that preceded the creation of the centre.

As of September 2020, the Gillberg Neuropsychiatry Centre has seen 15 doctoral students successfully graduate, with some continuing their post-doctoral studies at the GNC.

The first ever Japanese Phd student at the University of Gothenburg graduated from the GNC.
