Jan Buitelaar is professor of Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Radboud University Medical Centre, and head of Karakter Child and Adolescent Psychiatry University Centre.

He has a strong clinical and research interest in neuropsychiatric disorders as ADHD, autism and impulsivity and aggression related disorders, and has been involved in pharmacological, cognitive, clinical, genetic, and neuroimaging studies in these disorders. His current active research is focused on translational studies aiming to identify new molecular targets for ADHD and autism through matching preclinical models to human imaging genetics studies. He is particularly interested in the role of language impairments in neurodevelopmental disorders.

Jan Buitelaar is strongly involved in the public debate on neurodevelopmental disorders as autism and ADHD and regularly disseminates research findings and scientific insights to policy makers, media, and patients and their families.

He is co-leading the WP6 on infrastructure and will contribute to LiI by facilitating access to cohorts of patients with neurodevelopmental disorders and by focusing on clinical applications of more fundamental research in LiI.
