The Bror Gadelius memorial fund awards Erik Andersson grant

Erik Andersson has been awarded a grant from the Bror Gadelius memorial fund for our D-cycloserine study in OCD. Who was Bror Gadelius? Well, for someone working on a thesis on OCD like Erik Andersson it is interesting to know that Bror Gadelius, once a leading Swedish psychiatrist born in 1862 wrote his thesis on obsessions (Om Tvångstankar och dermed beslägtade fenomen) in 1896. Gadelius became a professor at Karolinska Institutet in 1903 and worked hard to reform mental health care including bringing psychiatric wards to the main hospitals instead of more remote asylums.
