Institute presentation

The Hannover Medical School (Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, MHH), founded in 1965, is one of the world's leading university medical centres. Due to its interdisciplinary research MHH has strong collaborative links with many academic and industrial research organizations worldwide. MHH concentrates its research activities to unravel basic mechanisms which will be, in close collaboration with clinical facilities, translated into clinical research. Building on a broad expertise in medicine, immunology, biochemistry, structural biology, genetics, cell biology and infectiology MHH scientists study human diseases and develop innovative strategies for diagnosis, prevention and therapy.

At the Clinic of Psychiatry, Socialpsychiatry and Psychotherapy, in 1994 a specialised outpatient department was established for the diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from Tourette’s syndrome (TS) and other tic disorders. Kirsten R. Müller-Vahl is the head of this specialized TS outpatient clinic. Her major area of research is the phenomenology, pathology and treatment of tic disorders.
