This project aims to gain insight into the mechanisms underlying pathological aggression in paediatric conduct disorders and to translate the preclinical findings into predictive, preventive and therapeutic strategies for the benefit of vulnerable patient groups. This requires a strong multi- and interdisciplinary research team. The Aggressotype consortium is based on successful existing collaborations and consists of 24 partners from eleven different countries. It comprises experts in childhood and adult psychiatry from eleven countries. This ensures maximal dissemination, clinical implementation and business development opportunities. Aggressotype represents a unique mix of people with skills and expertise in neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, preclinical animal and in vitro models, neuroimaging and neurochemistry, genetics and genomics, epigenetics, bioinformatics and biostatistics, clinical pharmacology, regulatory affairs, ethics, valorisation and project management. Aggressotype was funded within the European Framework program FP7 in 2013 with a total budget of 6 million Euros and with a duration of 5 years. For more information, see www.aggressotype.eu.
